  1. I’ve spoken to so many couples who never talk about money with each other. They’ll speak with me and start to complain about each other. I’ll put them in a room and there is silence. Communication is so important prior to getting in a relationship, during and pre-marriage. Of course throughout the marriage and even towards retirement and after-life plans. But, its rarely spoken about just stressed over.

    • Jason,

      Your experience matches mine. I have also spoken to couples that speak past each other, never understanding – and/or agreeing – to what their financial objectives are or how to achieve them.
