They say money can't buy love but money can definitely cause a rift in your relationship. 25% of couples wait too long to discuss their finances. Although it can be uncomfortable it is very important to discuss finances before you commit to spending your life with someone. You would hate to find out that your partner is $50,000 in debt and you're planning on buying a house.
One in three happy couples stick to a budget and three out of four happy couples talk about money at least once a week. Planning for the future is very important to most couples.
You should talk about money often to make sure you are meeting the goals you set for each other. Things happen and you need to be prepared for rainy days. You have to look at the big picture.
