Loonie love

Posted on: July 9, 2013

When was the last time you had a ‘money meeting’ with your significant other? It probably doesn’t sound as fun as a date out at the movies or a concert if you manage to find some alone time. Whether you call it a ‘dollar date’, ‘change chat’, or ‘loonie love’, it’s time to grab a cup of tea or a glass of shiraz, carve out 20 minutes, and book a time regularly to talk about your family finances.

Don’t forget this time is to be a proactive, constructive conversation, and not a reactive explosion the night the credit card bill arrives!
