By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:


This weekend the challenge is to look at the relationships in your life and how they affect your finances. If you are married, then money will be a rather large part of your relationship. It can affect every aspect of your life. If you are dating someone or living with a partner or significant other, then money can affect nearly as much as if you were married. However, you should still keep your finances separate. and if you are single, there are still relationships that are going to affect your money. Your family and friends will affect how you spend, save and handle your money.

The challenge is to examine the different relationships in your life affect the way you spend. Do you feel pressured to go out every weekend and blow a lot of money with your friends? Do you and your significant other fight over who has to pay the utility bill each month? Are you and your spouse at odds with the financial priorities in your marriage? The challenge will help you address any or all of these issues, so that you can focus on building strong relationships and stop spending so much time worrying about money.
