No no no. I survived 2 whole years with barely any money for food when my husband was in another state attending college. I divided my paycheck in half for each of us and there was only enough money to pay for the roof over our heads and gas money for me to get to work. I became way too thin. People I worked with noticed how thin I became and told me they were worried about me. My inlaws offered me money but I declined. My husband and I survived. I knew this was a temporary sacrifice for our future. Never ever ever compromise your principles.
