Do You Need a Support Group Like Dating a Banker Anonymous?

If you spend your day tracking the market to predict your guy's mood when he walks in the door, you may be a candidate for joining Dating a Banker Anonymous. This women-only support group was started in November, when it seemed the impossible was occurring nearly every week in the banking world, and the market volatility was spilling into the relationships of those in the industry.

The group consists of about 30 women in their twenties who meet up to two times a week and posts updates to a collective blog. They discuss everything from the effect the economic ebbs and flows have had in the bedroom, to their finance guys' inability to focus on anything but work, and how it feels to suddenly have perks cut like credit cards and dinners at the best restaurants.

I'm not surprised that the economy is taking a toll on relationships, especially when one partner faces daily intense pressure and stress on the job. But it's not just bankers who are suffering from relationship trouble. I can imagine many couples that are struggling to pay bills or are dealing with extended unemployment could use their own support groups to pour their hearts out when things at home are tense.

I couldn't deal with that. I couldn't work a job where you are so worried about the economy day after day. It's too much pressure on you and your relationship when you can't control it at all.

OH that DABA blog is SO FUNNY. I laughed so hard. I have to believe it is a satire. It just sounds way too much like a joke. And if not- well -those couples deserve each other. Too bad they can't see it.

I saw their blog earlier! I wish I had their "problems." I understand that part of it is tongue-in-cheek, but one woman was (seriously, in my opinion) complaining about having to go to a mid-town spa for her facials instead of the fancy spa she has become accustomed to. S he also complained about actually having to cook meals for her children. The horror!
