Relationship blogger Nora Nur is an educator, entrepreneur, and personal friend. A few months ago, she published a piece titled, “Money, How Much Does It Matter in a Relationship?”
In her post, men and women of different ages and backgrounds shared their perspectives on love, money, and relationships. They talked about the ways money impacted their dating preferences—and, later, their marriages.
Stop for a second and read it, and then come right back. You have to come right back though!
Okay, did you read it?
Great. Let’s chat for a few minutes.
We all have different values and different expectations about how much money we need to survive, thrive, and live our best life.
There’s no doubt that money matters in a relationship, even if you don’t actually care about money. The question is how much does it matter?
Does money matter more in domestic partnerships than in non-domestic unions? Does money matter more for couples who have children than for those who don’t?
It’s an important question, but it doesn’t give the full picture. (Sorry Nora!).
