Are you afraid to talk to your significant other about money?
Do you go shopping and hide your stash in the trunk of your car until the coast is clear for you to sneak the bags in the house?
Or are you the thrifty frugal one and your partner’s laissez faire lifestyle make you crazy?
How is your relationship with money? Y’all cool?
For many people, everything they know and feel about money is based on their upbringing. Rich, poor, single parent, both parents, foster homes… whatever the experience, there has always been a relationship with money. You and the love of your life may not have the same experiences, views, or values when it comes to money. You need to know this and learn how to work with these differences before, during, and after your wedding.
Talk about Money
Let’s say you absolutely hate, with every fiber of your being, talking about money. You hate thinking about money. The thought of someone else asking you how you spend money makes you cringe.
Guess what! Once you start thinking about bringing another person into your life to be your life partner, you have to get over those feelings. You have to let them help you deal with your hatred towards money. Only then will you be able to make decisions for your family, your household, and your future together.
Once you have clarity about how you will spend and save your money TOGETHER, then you can have more peace of mind. You can release the fear and guilt that came in your childhood baggage. You can start to rearrange your thoughts to reflect more satisfaction with your financial decisions.
