Money is problematic enough when you’re single and alone and trying to make rent, eat dinner and have the most fabulous dress at the party, but throw another person into the equation and things start to get dicey.

You’d expect that money would be an easier topic to talk about since it’s a tangible concept compared to other emotional issues. But couples often find these topics painful and difficult to discuss — even women may see their issues related to ego and self-worth as relating more closely to money than they realize.

Because of the control that money has on what we can and can’t do, it’ll always influence our romantic lives, too. Most people will say that when it comes to love, money is no object and that’s great. As long as it’s true for you.

If, on the other hand, you want a very specific lifestyle, or you want to save to buy a house, or you just want to live frugally, how your partner approaches money will matter or else expect many arguments to follow later on!

Another big factor in relationships isn’t just how much money you make and save, but how generous you are with it. For example, there’s the age old dilemma: Who pays on a date? How much should you spend on your partner?

Choices around money in relationships are deeply personal – but at the very least, make sure you’re both prudent, thoughtful, and willing to share when necessary, or else things can get much more difficult in tough times.

So, what’s the truth? Does money matter in a relationship?
