Is being financially responsible when it comes to relationships/potential partners important to you?

It’s not how much money you earn.. it’s mainly more about you being responsible when it comes to money.

Do you just spend it like there’s no tomorrow OR do you save half and spend half OR just don’t generally spend it at all and save?

  • Yeah it's important to me because I view every girl as I date as a potential permanent partner so I look for things like is she irresponsible , is she bad with money.

    Having fun and spending money is all fine and well just make sure you can afford it, like don't go and have a weekend trip if it'll put you behind enough that it'll threaten the bills and not put food on the table you know? Just common sense.

    As for me it really just depends if I have a surplus of money and nothing I particularly need I may indulge and buy a few things I want but in general I try to save my money. If I won the lottery I'd probably put most of it away and invest some of it, rather then go on a spending spree, I'm that kind of guy.

  • Yes, it's important. Real life isn't fantasyland where you can spend and spend and never have to worry. Emergencies happen, cars break, jobs are lost, tenants are evicted, etc. You'd better have some savings to get you through. And being a slave to consumer debt is terrible.

  • It’s important to me to hold a job that could reasonably support me if my husband were taken from me. It’s important also so while together I can contribute to our home. It’s important he knows he could lean on me if he ever lost his job, became ill etc I think everyone needs financial independence & responsibility

  • If I want to marry them the answer is YES. I would not want to date somebody I cannot envisioning marrying, let alone marry somebody who has these red flags. It is a MUST. Otherwise, no plans of marriage or kids, do whatever you want as long as your not living with them.

  • It is vital for the suvival of any relationship. Both partners have to plan for the loss of either one of them.

    Although my mum has a career in her own right, for which there will always be a need, my dad made very adequate provisions for her, and us kids, in the event of something going wrong.

    It is as if he knew he would not survive long after he reached his 30's.

  • Best a man who is responsible with money especially if it's a long term relationship so you don't suffer the consiquences. And you never know when you will need the money you irresponsibly spent, I'd prefer a man who can spend wisely and save wisely.

  • Being responsible in general is important to me in a relationship and being responsible with money shows me they have will power and I can trust them not to do stupid stuff with money if we ever got a shared bank account together in the future.

    I don't want someone who takes money for granted and pisses it up the walls, I see that as muture and stupid.

  • It over the top importance to me! I am a Type A person. I judge guys on how he spends his money before I even decide on anything. If I have to be responsible why doesn't he?

    It shows me he thought of a future not just living in the here and now. Which is fine to an extent but rainy days do come.

  • eh to some extent. If she's wasteful that's okay as long as it's not crippling her to the point of asking others to cover her bills or rent. As long as she's not to that extent I'm good. Most people spend to much on eating out or things they don't need. I know for me if I simply don't eat out for a week I SUDDENLY have so much extra cash. Because $8-12 here and there for just one meal adds up quickly

  • It is important to me that each person contributes their share of the normal expenses. They can spend the remainder of their own earnings how they want, but I think it is a good idea to save up enough for 6 months of expenses just in case, and after that go ahead and spend the rest of your money each month after expenses are covered.

  • Yeah I think for women it's right to judge how much the man makes and how he spends it, but for men, we have a right only to judge how she spends it. We ultimately don't want her earning, we want her working for the family.

      My dad thought like you. In his old age he was always stressed about money because mom spent like 80% on frivolous stuff. They blew through his retirement in 5 years. Lost their house and moved into an apartment. He would be up almost every night trying to figure out how to make more money while she slept like a baby
