Managing your finances well brings a sense of calm that can do wonders to your relationship

Looking to having your financial situation in order isn’t that sexy but it does assist in freeing up the mind and the left hand side of the brain to concentrate on other priorities in your relationship. Freeing your mind from the daily grind of managing your budget can do wonders for other areas of your relationship, particularly intimacy.

Reviewing your incomings and expenses on a regular basis can be time consuming but once understood and the actions you and your partner need to take to keep your expenses within budget and under control, the sense of calm can do wonders for your relationship. Take time to look at your entire financial picture and what is anticipated throughout the year – particularly major expenses.

Create or Evaluate Your Budget: 

The goal is to construct a workable budget, to establish how much income you can count on, to outline your expenditures by category and to estimate how much money you need for each category.

Take the Couple Checkup

The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another. The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy. 

The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
