  • Yeah.

  • It's tiring to do it.

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • (fast paced music)

  • Long term goal for a partner with me

  • would definitely be able to be a power couple.

  • I love that idea of like,

  • having a nice house, some property,

  • where friends can come and just give them the key.

  • So to have the capital and the creativity

  • to make that the beautiful, comfortable space,

  • I would love to have a partner to share that with.

  • I have a small little fashion business with my brother.

  • We do tie dye shirts, tie dye skirts,

  • tie dye dresses, just little fun, cute stuff for summer.

  • Because mostly in South Africa

  • December is a time for summer and to show some skin,

  • so we have a little small little business that we do together.

  • (upbeat music)

  • A good salary for a couple in the U.S.,

  • you got some class to you,

  • you got some real class to you, so I wrote 350K.

  • I think that you think that women

  • and men should both be the breadwinners.

  • That's what I wrote.

  • I circled them both.

  • You would consult your partner

  • about financial decisions over $1,600.

  • A good salary for a couple in the U.S.,

  • that was a good amount, actually.

  • That was a really good amount.

  • I says like, 20 grand a month

  • from each of us.

  • Mm-hm.

  • If we could like, both make 20 grand a month,

  • amounts to the same, I think.

  • Together, together?

  • - Each! - Each?

  • - Yeah, each. - Each.

  • You make 20 grand, I make 20 grand.

  • Yep, so that's like 480.

  • Pretty much.

  • Yeah.

  • That is a nice...

  • Yeah, I definitely think both

  • woman and man should be the breadwinner.

  • (ding)

  • Especially if we think of having kids.

  • You would consult with her partner about

  • financial decisions, I would say over 10 grand.

  • - 10 grand. - Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • How did you arrive at $20,000,

  • basically you're saying half a million dollars a year.

  • I thought to myself, okay, what is the number for me,

  • just individually without anyone to make per month?

  • I would be like 20 grand at basic.

  • That should be like, the amount gets in, 20 grand.

  • And then after that, if I make more, great, wonderful.

  • So if I'm gonna make 20 grand, you're gonna make 20 grand.

  • (laughs)

  • Okay, alright.

  • If not, I'll help you.

  • (laughs)

  • We can help each other.

  • A good salary for a couple

  • in the U.S. would be $20,000 each.

  • You think both should the breadwinner.

  • Both man and woman.

  • You would consult with your partner

  • about financial decisions over 10 grand.

  • A good salary for a couple in the U.S.,

  • I wrote the same for you,

  • but it's also what I feel.

  • I thought 350k was like, that's a nice lifestyle.

  • And that's well above the lifestyle that I grew up living.

  • - Right. - For sure.

  • I think men and women should totally have

  • the opportunity to be both breadwinners.

  • But if one is more than the other,

  • and the lifestyle is reached with

  • one of them having more financial success than the other,

  • I don't see anything wrong with it.

  • I would consult with a partner

  • about financial decisions over $5,000.

  • Let me ask you, you know,

  • about the whole bread winning thing.

  • I agree with you, actually.

  • But I also believe that

  • when two people are in a relationship

  • they should also push each other to be better.

  • Absolutely.

  • But if one is making more

  • I would want that one to help the other,

  • or like, help them find a way

  • to generate as much money as they would want.

  • You know, just help them out.

  • I would say I agree with you

  • that you gotta help each other out,

  • but if, let's say example is,

  • I become that director, I get a blockbuster hit,

  • millions of dollars.

  • You have a job where you're generally pulling in

  • a quarter million dollars a year.

  • And then you say, I wanna be a painter.

  • Maybe there's money in that, maybe there's not,

  • but I'd love a space to create.

  • If the finances are there and that is truly your dream,

  • I would hope that, you know, it would be more than, go paint,

  • but like, yeah, build your studio

  • and your workshop and whatever that is

  • to the best you can.

  • But support isn't always the money thing.

  • Yeah, no.

  • That's actually what I meant in a way.

  • But, yeah.

  • Cool.

  • Alright.

  • (upbeat music)

  • When we first met I thought,

  • yeah, I'd totally love to date you.

  • (suspenseful music)

  • But, after talking to you,
