Do you ever find it challenging to discuss money matters, especially with your significant other? You're not alone; 64% of couples avoid talking about money due to financial incompatibility.

Many couples don't address financial topics during dating or marriage, which can lead to unexpected issues later.

In this episode, we will explore the importance of money conversations with your significant other and other family members, such as aging parents and children learning about finances.

Segment 1: Talking to Your Significant Other:

Begin by expressing genuine interest in financial planning for the future.

Instead of demanding a conversation, show your desire to know more about your joint financial situation.

Consider initiating weekly or monthly "family board meetings" to review expenses, income, and financial goals together.

For those unfamiliar with financial terms, self-education can be essential; later episodes will delve into key money terms.

Segment 2: Engaging Kids in Financial Literacy:

The education system often overlooks financial literacy, making it vital for parents to take the lead.

Encourage children to participate in money discussions by involving them in weekly board meetings.

Use simple visual aids like colored pencils and markers to make budgeting and expenses tangible.

Empower children with their own bank accounts and teach them the importance of wise financial decisions.

Segment 3: Planning for the Future:

Address the crucial aspect of estate planning, which is often overlooked or considered overwhelming.

Start by listing your assets, liabilities, and wishes regarding the distribution of your belongings.

Communicate your plans to family members, fostering a sense of security and clarity for the future.

Emphasize the importance of early estate planning, even for younger individuals, as life can be unpredictable.


Engaging in money conversations can be challenging, but taking the first step is crucial.

Communicate your interest to your significant other, involve your children in financial discussions, and start estate planning.

Remember that these conversations may not happen overnight; patience and persistence are key.

Stay tuned for more episodes on making money conversations easier, as we continue on this journey together.
