There sit the real professionals, and besides, great psychologists. They see through your deception immediately. In addition, restrictions on the part of income that goes to pay off the mortgage payments are justified. You yourself may not be able to pay more than 50% of the salary without having to greatly injure their own interests and to deprive his family of many essential features.
Third error - self-confidence. Today you have an excellent relationship with the second half and with the administration of the company where you work. And tomorrow it may be that marital happiness "bursting at the seams," and your firm on the brink of bankruptcy.
