How to Manage Money and Your Relationship (Even If Your Goals Are Different)

Check out two these videos where John Schneider and David Auten, also known as the Debt Free Guys, join us to chat about the importance of couples supporting each other's' financial goals and understanding how much money you actually have.

  1. Finances and Couples

  2. If you don't have the same financial goals as your significant other, that's okay. What's important in a relationship is that you support your significant other's financial goals.

    Watch to learn about:

    • Not having the same financial goals
    • Knowing and supporting each other
    • Checking each other's credit reports for compatibility reasons
  3. How Much Money You Actually Have

  4. John and David explain the important difference of how much money you make versus how much money you actually have. Automating recurring expenses can help allow for more flexibility with the money that you do have.

    This video covers:

    • Understanding how much money comes in
    • Knowing where the money goes
    • Automating regular expenses
