Money has meaning, beyond the expenses and the budgets and the arithmetic involved with saving and spending. The goal of this date night is to share what money means to you, and understand what money means to your spouse.
You might share about how your parents handled money, the messages you received about money, what money symbolized in your family and community and how all that impacts your own thoughts about money.
• Listen to each other’s stories around money. With genuine, open curiosity; no judgment. You might take a money style quiz together.
• IMPORTANT: This conversation should not be about creating budgets, money making/saving ideas or harping on money mistakes of the past or current.
