Money Talks to Have Before Marriage

October 24, 2009

This is an excellent article on the need for discussions with your partner on your attitudes to money, before you get married.

No matter how stable the relationship, nor deep your love, differences in attitudes to money can be very difficult in a relationship. You are no longer solely responsible for the money – neither the earning nor the spending, and this can cause serious conflict. It is better to know about this and discuss how you will manage the issues before they arise. For my NZ readers it is based on the situation in the USA but the principles are the same.
