Talking to your partner about money for the first time can often feel a little uncomfortable. In fact, it can feel uncomfortable any time.
But having the ‘money chat’ early on can save a lot of financial-based problems in the long run.
That doesn’t mean talking about money on the first date, but according to money expert and founder of MyBudget, Tammy Barton: “There are other subtle ways to learn about another person’s money values, just by observing their general conversation and spending habits.”
Speaking to Mamamia, Tammy says that when looking for a partner, people often overlook the importance of financial compatibility.
“Money isn’t everything, but sharing the same money values can make life easier. If one person’s a saver and the other one’s a spender, for example, you can assume that at some point there’s going to be tension.”
