English: Once I was in a class and the professor said: “Raise your hand if you know what are your significant other’s favorite food, favorite color, and birthday”. At that moment most of us raised our hands. But then he said: “Now I want to know how many of you know their credit score, the money they have available, and all the debt they have to pay?” At that point only the professor and I raised our hands.The first cause of divorce in United States is the lack of communication, and second, are financial problems. When we decide to be with someone, one of the first topics that have to be discussed is finances. Many studies have shown that communication is important in order to have a long-lasting relationship. However, new studies have found that sharing goals and values about money is a stronger predictor of marital satisfaction.Furthermore, research findings are showing that there is a relationship between having financial difficulties and distrust, conflicts, and unhappiness in the relationship. Sometimes we think we know who we have chosen to be our partner. We assume that our love will go beyond any test. When in fact statistics show that a relationship of two individuals who do not communicate about their finances and their financial goals is uncertain. Bringing up this topic can be uncomfortable, but not as much as living unhappily in a relationship that does not have a clear purpose.Today is a good day to talk with your significant other about love and money. You will be surprised of all the things you will achieve when you understand where you are today financially, and as a couple create a plan to get to where you want to be.
