Couple time should be couple time.

When we find ourselves with a significant other, the focus should be to enjoy each other’s company and have fun. The challenge is that most activities that promote this cost money.

If finance isn’t part of the conversation—thoughts and feelings get pushed under the rug, making the time together less enjoyable than it should be.

Today, on the $mart Women Invest podcast, we are kicking off Season 3 by discussing what it means to be the breadwinner. Whether it is picking up the check at dinner or putting down a deposit for a new apartment—money inevitably finds its way into the conversation.

Tune in to today’s episode to hear how to navigate the complex dynamics of personal finance inside a relationship.

Points to Keep In Mind

  • 70% of people still live paycheck-to-paycheck
  • Productively discuss money by asking short-term/long-term goals
  • Don’t be afraid to ask your significant other how much he/she makes
  • Recognize how attitudes about money change in relation to who is in the room
  • There are less intrusive ways to ask about money than salary (ex: “What is your relationship with money?”)
  • Check out the app Joy to get better at saving money
