Talking about finances with your significant other on Valentine’s Day probably doesn’t sound very romantic. But given that money is one of the top stressors in a relationship, it’s a habit worth embracing. And it can actually bring you closer together—discussing finances with your partner can build trust and help you bond over shared financial aspirations and work toward common goals. Couples who manage their money together enjoy higher relationship quality and stability, according to a 2019 University of Arizona study. What could be more romantic than that?
The agenda for a financial date night need not be long or complex. The objective is to get a pulse on where you are today, what you are working towards, and what you need to do to get there.
