Are finances important when dating?

By

You will know after the first few dates whether or not this is the case, and one can safely assume that if he’s a good dad with joint custody, a percentage of his income is going to child support. There are also instances where your date may be paying alimony, but this isn’t always obvious, and it’s not your business to ask about until your relationship progresses to a more serious level.

My advice to anyone who is in a serious amount of debt would be to carefully evaluate your finances before making the decision to find love. A relationship is about merging worlds and offering to others what we expect to receive.
