Money mates

I’m in a lighthearted mood, as my wife and I are in the airport waiting for a plane to Malaysia where we’ll celebrate our third anniversary. Anyway, I found this little article about how important it is for each person in a relationship to see eye to eye about money:

…it’s imperative to have true financial intimacy between the two of you, which means that you both truly understand each other’s motivations, fears, and goals when it comes to managing money. From that intimate understanding, you can build a financially compatible partnership. But if you go into a relationship without discussing these important issues – or currently find yourself in one full of money stress – I am here to warn you that someday, however much you love each other, the relationship may well end up emotionally bankrupt.

There’s also a quiz about your fiscal style. I doubt it’s better that the quizzes in Cosmo, but I guess it’s worth a try.
