the Creative Money blog
Lately, it seems there are a lot of couples telling me that they can’t agree how to spend their money. I actually see this as a conversation about ways to save money, because the only reason to control spending is to make sure you’re saving enough, right? This is pretty typical; in romance, it seems that you are attracted to someone who is different than you are, so the saver is often attracted to the spendthrift. And when you are looking for ways to save money, it can get very frustrating.
