Welcome to Day 4 of the Better Communication Challenge! We hope you're enjoying the activities so far.
One of the things that couples have the hardest time communicating about is money. Many couples fight about how to spend their money, while others just don't talk about money at all, even though they should. In one study by Fidelity Investments in 2009, they found that only 45% of couples surveyed make decisions together about day-to-day financial matters.
Your activity for May 5 is: Talk About Money. Today, try our first money conversation starter of the challenge (we'll have more of these throughout the month). Sit down with your partner and ask each other, "What are your top 3 savings priorities?"
Do you and your SO have a hard time communicating about money? Tell us how using this conversation tip went in the replies below!
