My age is 62, I am currently retired on a pension that just allows me, individually, to meet all basic needs. I am in a romantic relationship with a lady who is 9 years younger. She has a good job an makes a good salary. We would like to be married, but I am not willing to make that decision as long as I cannot offer a fair share financially. I am willing to go back to work, but finding a job may not be soon enough and there is no guarantee it will provide the salary level that would be appropriate. At our age, there will be a time when we will not be able to work anymore. Also, some unexpected health issue, in some unexpected near future, could happen forcing either one to stop working, in these situations I could not provide the financial comfort needed to not be worried about money. My savings would not last a long time, either. She thinks that this is not a problem, that she earns enough and love will keep us together. I think that love is wonderful, it is the essential element, but beyond love there are financial issues that ensure a successful marriage. Am I wrong about this concern? Any advice and suggestions will be appreciated most sincerely. Thanks to all.

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
