Could Your Spouse Have Secret Debt?

struggling with finances
Do you know if your partner is deep in debt? Prevent financial infidelity with these tips.

2. Get some third party assistance. We wouldn't try and tackle this on our own. Ask someone with more experience and a fresh perspective to help you understand how you got here and how to never return here.

3. Identify your "Money Personalities." Understand each other's view of money. Every person approaches money differently. If you understand your spouse's Money Personality you can head off some of the problems before they arise and talk through your individual approach to money in an open, thoughtful manner.

 

It looks like Josh's Primary Money Personality is a Saver. His Secondary may be a Security Seeker. Is Paige a Risk Taker? A Spender? A Flyer? Our quiz calculates both Primary and Secondary Money Personalities so Josh and Paige, and all of us, can deal openly with who we are and who we fell in love with. 

There's definitely some trouble in paradise but they can take this opportunity to start fresh and learn some valuable insights about each other that will help their marriage far beyond the honeymoon.
