My partner and I had a pretty detailed discussion about our immediate future - the next three or four years specifically. In the next fortnight, she will receive a much anticipated letter, which will be a decision on whether or not she has a place at University to study full-time from September. This means that, for all intents and purposes, we will have to find a way to manage throughout that time on my income alone. The reward at the end of this time will be two full-time incomes and a chance to pay off our remaining debt when The Piranha finds employment following graduation. She is all but guaranteed a job at the end of her course. Of course, there is much more reward than that as The Piranha has come to realise this is a vocation and not just a job.
