Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Financial Date Night Twist

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for romance; it’s also a perfect occasion to bond with your partner over financial planning. In the spirit of love and partnership, why not merge the celebration with a constructive talk about your finances?

Whether it’s a cosy breakfast at home, a serene picnic lunch, or any other setting, dedicating time to discuss your finances can strengthen your financial health and your relationship.

I, Lynda Moore, an esteemed Financial Planner in Auckland, suggests some key strategies for a fruitful financial date:

  1. Set a Regular Schedule: Commit to a monthly financial date. Regularity keeps you on track and prevents you from overlooking your financial discussions.
  1. Separate Finance from Romance: Avoid mentioning money matters during a regular date night. It’s crucial to keep financial dates distinct to avoid any unwelcome surprises.
  1. Be Prepared: When managing household finances, come prepared with your figures. Highlight the positives first – successes, surprises, and areas of improvement.
  1. Plan Ahead: Use this time to plan for upcoming events like weekend getaways or birthdays. Anticipating future expenses keeps you both on the same page.
  1. Align Your Goals: Regularly review your shared visions and goals. Celebrate your progress and recalibrate if necessary.
  1. Stay Calm: If discussions become tense, it’s okay to pause and resume later. Maintaining a positive atmosphere is vital.
  1. Create a Relaxing Environment: Treat your financial date like any other date night. Eliminate distractions, choose a comfortable spot, and include snacks and drinks. Start and end with a warm embrace, irrespective of the discussion in between.

I am emphasising the importance of these financial date nights. They gradually shift focus from past financial activities to future planning and celebrating financial successes. The alternative, which often involves arguments over money or avoiding the topic, can lead to frustration and harm your financial stability and relationship.
