MMM #23: For Better or For Worse: Getting on the Same Financial Page with Your Spouse
“He is a spender, and I am a saver. I just don’t know how to make sure we are saving enough toward the goals that matter most!” One of the most common questions I get involves how someone can get on the same financial page with their partner or spouse. After the Beta members took the MD to Financially Free course, many of them said this was no longer a problem in their marriage.
After you have the tools to get on the same financial page with your spouse, the big picture becomes the motivation behind the “how-to” for your financial life. That’s what this podcast episode is all about.
What You’ll Learn:
In this episode of Money Meets Medicine, “For Better or For Worse: Getting on the Same Financial Page with Your Spouse,” you’ll learn:
- Why it’s SO important to get along with your finances when it comes to money!
- How Medical Degree to Financially Free can help you work together with your spouse.
- How to figure out what you want with your life and finances.
- Why getting on the same page about money, may not involve talking a bout money.
- And more!
Quotes to Remember:
“They [Doctors] spend so much time taking great care of people and learning their craft, they don’t want the stress of figuring out most things on their own.”
“Expectations and reality have to be linked.”
“The way you get them (your spouse) on the same page, is not by talking about money.”
