In terms of your financial communication, do you and your partner:
- Regularly discuss financial matters
- Occasionally talk about finances
- Rarely discuss money matters
It’s never too late to start discussing your finances! Building a life together with your partner involves frequent financial choices. Get in the habit of discussing financial matters early on to build a financial future full of both of your needs, wants, and wishes.
How do you envision your ideal retirement together?
- Traveling and enjoying your leisure
- Living a frugal and comfortable life
- We haven’t discussed our retirement plans.
Having a conversation with your partner about retirement will help you develop a retirement plan to meet both your goals. Speak with your financial advisor about each of your retirement goals and carefully evaluate your current financial health to properly craft a financial plan to ensure a happy retirement.
In the event of a financial windfall, what would you and your partner prioritize?
- Saving and investing
- Paying off debts
- Splurging on a shared experience
Life is full of uncertainties, but there is a way to prepare for them financially. Consider risk management to protect your wealth during unexpected circumstances. Have you considered diversifying your investment portfolio? Do you have an emergency fund? Sit down with your financial advisor to create a risk management strategy to ensure you are prepared in the event of a financial windfall.
How do you and your partner handle budgeting?
- We create a joint budget together
- Each manages their own finances
- We don’t have a specific budgeting strategy
Whether you and your partner have a financial plan together or separately, it is important to maintain a budget to ensure a healthy financial future. If you are struggling to create a budget, talk to your financial advisor. Together, you can come up with a plan fit to your unique financial situation and goals.
