Love and Money
This weeks blog is all about Love and Money. This Valentines Day, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about the importance of learning about your partners financial goals and dreams, and also learning their money type.
Valentine's Day is so heavily focused on buying flowers, candy and jewelry for your spouse, but rarely do you hear people say how they want to give the gift of financial intimacy. Well, I for one think that one of the best things we can do for our partners is to learn more about their money goals, so we can work towards having a harmonious financial relationship, where we support each other in reaching our goals.
Take the time to find out your partners money type. Find out if your partner is a natural born saver, a natural born spender, or a hybrid of the two. Also set up a monthly financial meeting with your partner wherein you discuss your various financial goals. You'll be surprised what you learn about your spouse during these meetings. I learned so much about my spouse during our meetings.
As a natural born saver who married a spender I learned that having the financial meetings allowed me to better appreciate my husband's money type, and surprisingly, I learned that while it is important to save money for things like retirement, vacations, and business ventures, it is equally important to take the time to spend money on things that feed your passion. I have my husband to thank for teaching me this valuable lesson!
So give your mate the most unexpected gift this Valentine's Day, give them the gift of financial intimacy, and learn about what their deepest goals and desires are as it relates to their financial ambitions and goals.
Have an awesome Valentines day everyone!
