In all the fun and emotion of dating, money conversations often get left out. And we understand that — talking about money doesn’t seem very romantic! The reality, however, is that if this relationship does go to the next level you will be making money decisions together. Finding out if you are compatible when it comes to how you handle your daily money decisions could be a deal maker or a deal-breaker.

According to a survey by Country Financial, 42% of couples do not talk about money before they are married. We didn’t, and we are now The Money Couple®!

 

improve your money conversations

Here are 3 tips to having your first money conversation:

 1.  Discover and reveal your Money Personalities

Take 15 minutes to take your Money Personality Assessment on our website. You need to understand how you look at and deal with money yourself. Click HERE to discover yours for FREE TODAY!!!

2.  Identify their response

Tell your boyfriend or girlfriend what you discovered with the assessment and wait for their response. For instance, finding out you were a Saver/Flyer and are telling them how important it is for you to have a good chunk of money saved for emergencies, and they look at you like you are from outer space, this is a huge red flag!

3.  Discover their Money Personalities

Ask them to take the assessment and see if there is any pushback. Remember, this is your first conversation. It’s not like you asked them how much debt they have. You just want to get to know them better. If they push back, another huge red flag!

Discovering more about the person you are dating helps couples decide if they want to pursue this relationship or not. As you talk about your Money Personalities, you will find this money conversation can be a little more romantic than you thought.

Did you talk about money before you were married? Tell us about that conversation in the comments below. If you didn’t, we’d love to hear your story as well. Please leave a comment. Let the dialogue begin!
