This week I had the joy of doing two interviews on money challenges with couples and families. I had a chance to pull together a few ideas for couples I thought you might enjoy on bringing the loving feelings back into the relationship while undergoing some financial stresses.
Rewrite Your Money Picture — Couples Advice
- Become a team. Stop assigning blame, it will not move you forward. Instead come together make a list of what you owe and create a pay-off schedule smallest to largest. Make a budget and work it together.
- Keep money talk out of the bedroom and meal time. Assign a specific time once a week perhaps Saturday morning 9-10am.
- Create a list of fun activities you can do together that are free or low cost. Then get those fun activities into your schedule and bring some fun and balance back into your relationship!
