Having a strong headed fiance can be legitimately frustrating.  He is so stubborn that he will rarely admit when he is wrong plus I have to make everything look like he thought of it in order to get things done.  That is, unless it comes to anything that will save him money. He will go out of his way to save five cents on a gallon of gas, not realizing that he is wasting gas to do so.  For this reason, it was a fairly self-explanatory sell when it came time to replace out appliances. He signed up right away; all the representative had to do was show him the chart plus how much he could save on the energy costs.  The new equipment will cost a small fortune to install however he didn’t seem to mind. The twenty percent savings he was going to be getting long term was all he could focus on. My fiance and I now have a new oil furnace that is completely controlled by a Smart climate control unit.  My fiance insists on being in charge of the programming plus I entirely don’t mind. Then I am just delighted that he agreed to the replacement so easily. I wish I could find a way to have new shoes save us money. At least they save my feelings plus mood – that should be enjoyable enough for him.  As long as my fiance and I have been together, this is the way he has been, so I should be used to it I guess. I will benefit from the replacement to the Heating, Ventilation and A/C method as well because the beach home will be more comfortable. I will settle for that!
