Falling in love and asking a loved one about finances seems to be at opposite ends of the spectrum.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 12, 2016
National Debt Relief recently shared in an article published August 31, 2016 some of the most appropriate questions people can ask their loved ones depending on what stage in the relationship they are in. The article, titled “Financial Questions To Ask: From Dating To Future Planning,” can give readers a few ideas on what those financial questions should be.
The article starts off by pointing out that falling in love and asking a loved one about finances seems to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. In fact, asking about money could end up bringing an abrupt end to a date night. But the fact of the matter is that finances are closely tied to almost all aspects of a person’s life including romance.
One of the times people have to ask about finances is during a date and it could be as subtle as who will pick up the tab or if it will be a 50-50 split. The tricky thing about this is that society has dictated that men pick up the tab on dates, but women can too. This financial question does not have a right or wrong answer because what couples get out of this is having the chance to talk about money.
Marriage is a big step and the article also shares that it is ideal to talk about finances at this stage as well. The most common question thrown around is how the couple would pay for this life event. There are some who are able to save up while others decide to borrow money from lenders. The idea here is that the couple should agree with how to proceed because they are going to start a life together.
The article also shares how the possibility of having children also brings up the opportunity of asking financial questions. This is because deciding to bring another human being on this Earth and raising a child would have big effects on a couple’s finances. As much as it would change their world around, it would increase their financial needs as well.
