Twenty-Seven years ago I met a guy. Seven years later, I married him. Here’s what we learned about Love, Marriage, and Money.
We can’t buy love. No amount of money will buy true love and genuine affection, so it’s important to remember that relationships should be based on mutual respect and understanding rather than material possessions or financial status.
Money should never be used as a weapon or tool of manipulation. A healthy relationship is one where both partners are able to discuss finances openly without fear of judgment or retaliation.
Respect each other’s values and opinions when it comes to money matters. It’s important to appreciate different perspectives and recognize that everyone has their own beliefs about how to best manage their money.
Compromise is key when it comes to money matters in relationships, especially if one partner is more financially savvy than the other one. Be willing to work together towards mutually beneficial arrangements that will keep you both satisfied with how you’re managing your finances together as a couple.
Money saved together is just as important as money spent together, so make sure you set aside some funds for the future instead of just focusing on current spending habits alone!
