Last week we discussed whether it was important to have a spouse who loved God. This week we will be talking about whether money is important in having a healthy relationship.
What is the number one reason for divorce in America? Money!
Yeah I guess everyone else is shallow, while you are deep. I guess no one has ever been in love like you are. This love will take you over the mountains and through the valleys, it can run faster than the speed of light, leap over walls, solve world hunger….sigh…love.
Don’t get me wrong, you should be with someone you love, but you better make sure that you are both on the same page when it comes to your financial goals. You better make sure that you have a plan to make money at some point in time. But then again I’m sure you can find a way to exchange your love for food in the market (please email me with that, I still haven’t figured that one out yet). You better make sure you are not planning to fail (divorce) by failing to plan.
Why not do something this week that you haven’t done before. Start a budget and stick with it. If you are in a relationship, watch how he or she deals with money (it’s important). If you are not in a relationship keep this in mind when picking a partner.
