The other day we were talking to a young lady and she was telling us about her Saver Money Personality – she gets a thrill out of the coupon section in the Sunday paper! Our comment to her was, “We bet your fiancé is the exact opposite.” She said… “YOU’RE RIGHT! How did you know?” We both smiled. Like so many other factors in relationships, opposite Money Personalities attract.
When Opposites Attract
The majority of individuals are attracted to their opposite and then they end up marrying them. Their different style, interests, and viewpoints seem to round us out.
People who have opposite “money personalities” attract and then once married, money opposites ATTACK. We want this “attacking” to stop. It doesn’t have to be this way.
We are strong supporters that you should never marry your money before you say, “I do”, but understanding each others’ Money Personalities is a “must do.”
Understand your differences and understand them quickly. Be sure to take our free Money Personality assessment. We want every couple to have an AMAZING relationship and we want to stop money from getting in the way!
We would love to hear from you! How does money get in the way of your GREAT relationship? How have you worked to overcome this?
