My DW handles the bills and budget and I handle the investing. Okay, her part requires a lot more work. But, I do keep her in the loop on the investing. We are 70% stock index funds and 30% short term bond index funds. Now you are in the loop also. My job is pretty easy. Did I mention I do have to complete an annual rebalance? Please don't tell the DW she is getting the short end of this deal.
