A lot of couples tell us that there’s often an imbalance between who spends more and who saves more in a relationship. And for the partner who may be more financially responsible, it often feels hopeless that the other person will ever change their spendy ways.
In this episode, we put my co-host Joel on the hot seat. At the beginning of his relationship, he was the spendthrift partner. But over the years, he’s made the dramatic transformation into the responsible financial guru he is today. How was he able to do this? What changes can you expect from your partner? And what are the things you can do to motivate your partner to change?
