I’ve been dating someone for a couple months now and, like a lot of people, he is experiencing financial difficulties.
He just recently began sharing these financial problems with me and I know it’s the reason why he’s been asking me out less than when we first started dating.
My research shows that 7 out of 10 couples report that money causes tension in their relationship.
Fearful of reliving the mistakes of her painful past, she drew up her must-have list of qualities she wanted in a new partner.
At the very top was a non-negotiable item that she underlined, circled, and marked with stars in the margin: !
That may be why so many couples avoid the topic entirely - particularly in the early stages of a relationship.
Ignoring the topic would have been the easy way out for Pam and Larry, who met on Senior People and now are married.
I am fine having dates that are economical and have let him know this.
