Luckily dh and I have financially planned well and I'm glad we did.  Those benefits that we had way back when we were in our early 30's and thinking nothing would ever change,, are not what we thought they'd be now. 

One needs to be frugal early on in this day and age,,,  you can' t plan  every little thing that happens in life so better to be a bit prepared for the unexpected.
