Keeping The Financial Spark Alive in Your Relationship

Anyone who’s ever been in a relationship wants to know the secret recipe to making love (and that illusive “spark” that everyone talks about) last forever.

And let’ be clear…even though everyone’s relationship is unique, there are certain keys or secrets to be learned from those who have managed to keep that spark alive.

And make no mistake, couples that practice Financial Foreplay® together, stay together… which is why it is absolutely vital for you to learn how to keep that financial spark alive.

Even if your romance started off as 50 shades of grey, it’s easy to see how busy work schedules, early morning meetings, grocery shopping, dishes in the sink and even crying toddlers can really test your connection. And when you introduce the financial pressures of buying a home, investing, or planning for your retirement… it’s not surprising for that spark to fade and perhaps become a little boring or predictable…

In fact, according to a new survey by Ramsey Solutions, money fights are the second leading cause of divorce, behind infidelity.

Our guest today is the perfect person to advise you on how to maintain the romance when your romantic fantasy has become a little ho hum, or even downright limp…

Financial Foreplay® Highlights:

  1. Relationships come with baggage – money is the heaviest baggage of all
  2. Retirees (on average) run out of money 10 years before they die – better advice and planning is essential to prevent this
  3. Rule of thumb – hold 4-6 months of monthly expenses as cash in the bank
  4. Communication between spouses is key – facilitate trust, share ideas, seek advice, set up a plan
  5. Best partnerships – have a joint account and are working toward mutual goals together (and each keeps something for themselves in a separate account)
