8 Financial Dealbreakers to Watch Out For

Pin it

Growing up, we’re often taught that talking about money is a social faux-pas. And, sure, it’s not a good idea to bring up your salary on a first date.

But! Like it or not, our finances, and how we handle them, are a big part of who we are. And before you get into a serious relationship with someone, it’s important to know whether they are a finance frog, or a finance prince.*

[*Note: Finance Prince does not just mean “rich”. Nor does this just apply to men, obviously. I just mean a person who is in good control of their spending, is not reckless with money, and will not endanger your financial standing by association. Someone you can buy a house with, down the line, should you choose to. It’s an imperfect analogy; just go with it.]

Worried that the person you’re with might be a bit of a dolt when it comes to money? Learnvest has 8 Signs You’re Dating a Financial Frog, and solutions for how to deal with the problems if you recognize them but are just too in love to care.
