Wouldn’t it be nice if you never had a disagreement about money with your partner ever again? Oh the bliss! Even just imagining this conflict-free future might be causing the tension in your shoulders to relax or that headache to fade. Unfortunately, that’s a paradise that’s lost and not something we can promise! Since most Americans report having major conflicts concerning money, it’s important to engage in healthy ways so that we avoid destructive patterns in our relationship as well as with our money. We want to work towards not only growing our wealth but growing and strengthening our relationships as well. During this episode we cover some of the common patterns of arguments we often hear about and what to do about those arguments. We also offer some tips that we believe will allow you to keep simple disagreements from escalating into knock-down-drag-out money fights.
- Joel has been happy with his cordless stick vacuum from Wyze.
- We mentioned how helpful it is to have a money mission statement– especially as you’re working through some financial disagreements with a partner.
And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the $750 welcome offer that comes with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
