The dirty 5-letter word in relationships? M-O-N-E-Y! Who makes more, who saves less? It’s harder to talk about than S-E-X so Lacey and Jessica get the conversation started.

    Everything you said is so true. I was in a very happy relationship that became unhealthy due to unbalanced power dynamics from money. Another related topic is how much both of your parents make. It doesn’t always come up, but in regards to gift-giving and wedding expenses, that becomes a whole nother strange thing in and of itself.

    Yeah, the idea of putting a % of your paycheque into a joint back account or money pot sound great and reasonable, but we all have to watch out for the person who spends more money then they make and sees the joint amount as their money to spend. They usually have tons of reason why they should be able to use it…usually all about them. But the joint account is about the relationship.

    Great topic! People often talk about emotional and physical intimacy in romantic relationships, but often gloss over things like joint finances and shared goals as a form of intimacy in long term relationships. I appreciate your insight.
