    It's probably the most common dispute and sometimes the reason behind separation but this can be resolve by simply just talking and settling things out between couples. Just remember to hold your patience and keep calm if ever your partner loses it's temper. And yes you may also try to suggest spending plan to your partner just like on what Mr. Fiance Simple has been suggesting.Stephanie

    There are lots of couples or about to get married lovers who are unaware of this information including myself though I'm still single. This matter is very important. Having similar interest saves you from wasting lots of money during your marriage years.

    Thanks for the great article,

    Not enough people talk about this subject, thanks for putting together such a thoughtful and detailed post on this! My fiance and I are still working through finding our compromises (I want to save every dime and he wants to save also, but not sacrifice certain quality of life type things) but the important thing is we've been able to always communicate openly about it. Compromise and communication are, in my opinion, the two most important tools for a couple trying to plan their finances together.

      Shannon,You guys don't need to compromise. You guys just need to collaborate.. What will make the team the happiest? On Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 3:16 PM, YFS <yourfinancessimplified@gmail.com> wrote: approve

        Interesting, I hadn't thought about it that way but I see your point. By focusing on what will make the team happiest maybe it won't feel like either of us is giving up anything and therefore make it easier to work together on our goals. It's funny how one word can change how something feels. Thanks!

        One word makes a huge difference. It's the reason why I use spending plan over budget.. spending plan seems more positive to me. I say focus on writing down goals.. agree on the goals then move in unison towards the goals. The team will work a bit easier this way :-)On Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 3:24 PM, YFS <yourfinancessimplified@gmail.com> wrote: approve

    It would have been tough having two Rottweilers in the house. Just sayin'….

    We talk about money all the time. I advocate a weekly meeting as the cornerstone of the budget and practice what I preach. Sure, we felt like dorks at first, but now our money discussions are less than 10 minutes because we've done it for so long.

      I thought we were the only ones who talked about money all the time. Heck it's become a thing of ours.. we talk about money everyday. The good and the bad. Now it's easy :-)On Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 8:19 AM, YFS <yourfinancessimplified@gmail.com> wrote: approve
