3 tips to talk about finances
- Focus on your why: Why you want to achieve financial security is closely linked to your love for your family. Make a date in a quiet setting to share your love for your partner and your dreams about where you want to go in your lives as a couple. Ask him/her for their thoughts and dreams. This can go along way to bringing you closer – and may even spark a little romance.
- Develop a plan, together: Once your dreams and goals are clear, you and your partner will together develop a budget and roadmap on how to get achieve them.
- Take action: While you’re motivated, take quick action to get your finances organized. After all, nothing dims romance like stress. Once organized, get your taxes filed by or before the deadline or file an extension.
