Share Financial Expectations and Budgets
The demise of many families revolves around finances. Often we bring different expectations about money to a relationship and coming to agreement on how we handle money together is a critical component of success. Agree on a budget and an approach to debt and then live within your limits. Learn to differentiate between a need and a want, and then make sure your needs are met.
Give Her the Right Amount of Space – the Amount She Wants
One of the hardest balances to find is the amount of time to spend together. Too much is smothering; too little is inattentive.
