Money and relationships

Money is a matter that can destroy relationships of any form when not handled properly. Some people go into relationships just for money or materialistic things. It's always best to separate your money from your relationship from the beginning. This is so that you don't find yourself trapped in any bad situation. For example when getting married, my personal opinion would be that its easier and better to go for a prenuptial agreement than community of property agreement.

It’s always best to separate your money from your relationship from the beginning. This is so that you don’t find yourself trapped in any bad situation. For example when getting married, my personal opinion would be that its easier and better to go for a prenuptial agreement than community of property agreement. This helps protect you both for future unknown debt or bad circumstances that you might encounter. It sounds selfish but like they say, “its better to be safe than sorry.”.

Personally, I learned from my mother’s divorce experience, which had a negative impact on me. She ended up struggle financially because of the divorce that ended up leaving her with almost nothing. This taught me to view money and relationships in a very particular way.

However, we are not all the same and it does depends on the kind of relationship you are in. As long as you are sure and also consider what would happen if you got divorced and had to share each others debts the decision is yours. The main thing to remember however is that communication is and will always be the best solution to situations like these.

Don’t rush into making decisions, think thoroughly not only for now but for your future too. After all, you wont just be protecting yourself, but your spouse too.
