I stay with my partner and

he paid lobola last month. The

problem is that we do not have

good jobs; I work at a filling station

and he is in construction. We both

want to have a better life. We now

want to buy a car and he tried to

borrow money from the bank but

he is blacklisted. So he asked me

to take out the loan but I’m scared

to owe the bank. I sometimes wish

I married a rich man. Please help.

A This is not a good idea.

How is he going to pay for

the loan if he cannot clear

the bad debts he has? You are

going to be in big trouble and

unfortunately, it’s your name that

you are dragging down. Let him

save money and buy the car that

he can afford in cash. Be grateful

for what you have and live
