One of the biggest mistakes couples make when it comes to money is to worry and obsess about finances to the point where it becomes all consuming. After all doesn’t every decision we make as a couple always come back to money? Why don’t we be intentional, talk about it, get it out on in the open so we can stop the fights, stop the questions and become closer as a couple. That’s why we advise you, as a couple, to plan regular conversations about your finances. We call them Money Huddles because they’re an opportunity to talk through your money relationship.
Set aside some time each month to look over your budget, pay bills, and dream about the future. Regular Money Huddles give couples a place to talk through your financial concerns and find ways to work through them together. And that means a lot less worry.
Couples often ask us how often should we have a “Money Huddle”? We say at least once a month.
Here are 4 steps to get you started to the perfect Money Huddle:
