Improving Your Money and Your Partner Relationship

Uncategorized
Money is often cited as one of the biggest problems in both romantic relationships and families too. According to a survey conducted by Wells Fargo, 44% of people ranked personal finances as the most difficult topic to talk about. The challenge is that when we don’t talk about money, we’re not able to resolve our differences and anyone who’s ever been in a relationship knows how detrimental that can be. It’s no surprise that mutual trust is eroded when relationships and money are misaligned especially because money and trust work hand-in-hand.A study published in 2013 in the Family Relations journal examined more than 4,500 couples and found that fights about money were a top predictor of divorce regardless of income, net worth, and debt levels.

Three Steps to a Better Relationship with Money

Uncategorized
Women yearn to have a juicy, satisfying relationship with money.We want intimacy, yet often shy away from talking about finances.

I think we can all agree that talking about our finances is uncomfortable, especially if your finances are not in the best health. Fortunately, you  do not need to broach this subject with everyone you meet. However you do need to be able to communicate with your significant other about money, especially in serious relationships. The 2016 Stress in America Report produced by the APA found that 64% of women and 57% of men reported money and family responsibility as one of their most significant stressors. Because money is such a huge source of stress for many people, couples need to talk about it. Ensuring that you and your partner are on the same page with how you spend money and what your individual situations are helps prevent future arguments and…

So you just graduated college, and you’re sitting at home staring at your really expensive piece of paper, wondering “Now what?” Leaving college, particularly as a 20-something, can be an intimidating shift. We’re leaving the relative shallow safety of our collegiate reef and swimming off the continental shelf into open ocean, which is full of scary fish like “finding a job”, “student loan debt” and “bills”. In what so often feels like a sink-or-swim situation (okay, I’ll quit with the fish metaphor), it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but it is not hopeless!
