Charged Up! podcast: How to handle love and money
Episode 7 with Erica Sandberg: 5 financial questions you should ask your partner now
By Jenny Hoff | Published: February 14, 2017
CreditCards.com columnist and author Erica Sandberg discusses with Jenny Hoff the questions you need to ask your spouse, significant other or partner to maintain a healthy financial relationship and avoid financial infidelity.
At the beginning of any relationship, how your loved one responds to questions – such as “What do you consider a splurge?” and “How do you view credit cards?” – matters.
Sandberg poses five questions you should ask either before you move in together or even if you’re already married. These include “Can we look at your credit report together?” and “How do you view debt?”
Sandberg explains how money conversations with the one you love don’t need to be awkward or confrontational. Instead, the discussions can be a healthy step in a good relationship. She also warns of red flags you should watch for when you get your answers.
Listen to Charged Up! with Jenny Hoff’s “Love and Money” episode to make sure your relationship stays honest and debt-free.
