  • This is definitely one of if not the most important thing I have to know about someone before I'd marry them. In any future serious relationship of mine, it's imperative that my partner be serious about her finances. I could NOT share my life with someone does not care about her financial well being. She MUST have (what I deem) strong financial sense and plan for the future.

    I believe the #1 reason for divorce in America is financial differences.

  • I would care of course, because this is something that will impact the relationship. However, if I feel that I am able to provide for her, or at least support her with her financial decisions, then I won't have a problem. It's all dependent on the circumstances, if she is in debt to help those in need, as in her closest family, I have no problem with that. IF she is in debt, to feed a drug, gambling, alochol, illegal addiction, then yeah. That would be a deal breaker...

  • I think finances are important. I think if they get out of hand, stress sets in majorly. Finances seem to be a very tricky thing now with debts, loans, and credit cards, but when things go really wrong I think that can negatively effect relationships too. With that being said, I am with someone who is terrible with finances but we talk about it together often and he tries. Its not a deal breaker for me especially when that is basically one of the only issues we ever deal with and we dont just brush it off, we openly communicate about it.

  • Knowing what I know now... I definitely wouldn't date someone that has terrible financing. My bf never cared in the beginning when we were dating about his expenses in life but I didn't know that. Ever since he was eligible to work he didn't manage his money well. Now that we have a son and are trying to start a real life together it's difficult since he had never opened a bank account nor put money aside in a shoebox or something. Life has hit him hard now that he's 25 all because he has bad management of his own money.

  • Nobody wants to commit to someone who is going to ruin them financially. You don't have to be a stockbroker, but being a financial liability isn't so different than being a drug addict or alcoholic.
