When we talk about your financial relationship, we’re not just talking about those moments when you and your partner sit down to pay bills or balance the checkbook or tally up receipts. We’re talking about the ways money decisions filter in to every part of your lives. That means that the way each of you thinks about money, talks about money, and deals with money will have an impact on everything from your grocery bill to your sex life.
That’s why it’s essential for couples to develop healthy financial communication skills. Part of doing that is knowing how to avoid some common pitfalls when in comes to money. This week is Part I of a two part series. We’re going to cover some of the financial mistakes couples make and ask you to think about how they might be affecting your relationship. Part II will give you solutions to these five money mistakes.
