Living with a spouse or a significant other is great but you will have to deal with some everyday and practical issues, as well. Working on financial stability together is the best way to overcome monetary problems and to prevent quarrels in the future.

A Joint Bank Account or Separate Accounts?
Many couples wonder whether to have one joint account or two separate accounts. Having both is usually the best idea.

Each of the partners should have an individual bank account. This money will guarantee the personal financial stability in the case of separation or any individual needs. A joint account will hold the couple’s savings that will be used for the achievement of mutual goals.

If you have any worries about your financial security, your individual savings and the money you will be getting in the case of a separation, you may consider talking to forensic accountants. These professionals do settle matrimonial disputes and they will suggest the best course of action.

Work on the Monthly Budget to Start Saving:
Do you have any idea about your partner’s spending pattern? A budget will be the best way to introduce some form of control and to begin spending money as a couple. In the beginning, it will be difficult to do but once you get used to budgeting, you will find it much easier to be financially responsible.

Try to allocate sums to basic expenses like household bills, food and transportation. Your monthly budget should include amounts for clothes, entertainment and vacations. All the other money you make should be saved, either in the individual or the joint account.

In the end of the month, you will get to figure out whether the budget is adequate. If you find yourselves incapable of paying for all the expenditure, you will have to do some additional calculations during the coming month. Learning to cope with a tighter budget will teach you both fiscal discipline and how to live with less. In the end, such efforts are going to be exceptionally beneficial for partners that are trying to save money.

Decide Together about Money Issues:
When it comes to financial issues, you should never assume something about your partner. Many couples experience serious quarrels or even separation due to financial issues. Talking about such sensitive topics in advance is always better than trying to handle the consequences.

Be open about your financial needs and about the money you want to save. Ask your partner about their needs and preferences, as well. You should try to figure out how much money you need and how much you will be willing to save.

Financial planning is crucially important for couples, whether the two people have been married for many years or they have just begun living together. You need to have financial goals and these goals should be mutual. Otherwise, you risk jeopardizing the relationship due to ambiguities and the unwillingness to do financial planning in advance.

Reduce Debt:
You probably have some debt that you accumulated individually or as a couple. Top ensure financial stability, you will have to begin reducing the debt.

Set a sum aside each month. Dedicate it to covering a part of the debt. Start with the one that has the highest interest rate and that will be costliest in the long term. Once you have managed to deal with debt, you will have to decide on techniques that will prevent you from accumulating more debt in the future.

Who is in Charge of What?
Who pays the bills? Who buys the food? When you go out, do you know who will be paying for the dinner and the entertainment?

Decide who is responsible for what right from the start. There is no universal formula. What works for one couple will be highly inefficient for another. Sit down together and talk about it. Each of the partners should have clearly established financial duties and obligations. As a result, the family finances will be in order and the two of you will enjoy monetary stability.

Working on financial issues with your partner will be cumbersome. Many couples postpone such discussions and as a result, they have to overcome serious problems. Be open about it and let your partner know what you think. Being financially responsible means working together on a monthly budget and coming up with a mutual saving strategy.

    Last night I’d asked a question as to whether or not I should have a child. Below is was my question:

    I’m 16 and live at home in a small mining town with my step mum and Dad. A month or so ago I had my first pap smear done, I wasn’t worried about the results. However, when they came back it was found that I have cancer cells. My doctor has told me that most likely within the next 2 years I won’t be able to have children as I’d have to have a hysterectomy. So, with that said and done; if I don’t have a baby now, I won’t have one at all.
    THINGS TO CONSIDER/ DETAILS: I personally know that I’d be so torn if I can’t have at least one child in my life, starting a family is something that I hold close to my heart and wish to do. I have a lovely boyfriend who’s 20 years of age, has a stable job with a considerably large income due to working out at the mines. My parents have told me they would support me if I was/ chose to have a child. My boyfriend and I have spoken and he said the same as my parents, he’d support me either way because he too wants children.
    What to do? Start early or not at all.

    Now, 7 out of 8 ‘answers’ were against having a child. Though, some of the 7 wished me luck and sat on the fence a little. There was on in particular answer that I found quite rude. I do realise that this is the internet and people are allowed to have their own opinions but this just wasn’t right. Here’s the answer:

    Your boyfriend is 20, your’e 16. That’s statutory rape.

    You say he has a ‘considerably large income due to working out at the mines’. What happens when he’s killed in a mining accident? Does he have life insurance with you and your child as the benficiary?

    There’s so much wrong with the situation you describe, I’m having a hard time figuring out where to start. Please do not have a child. You, the boy, and the grandparents are in no position to bring another life into this world simply because you might have to have a hysterectomy 2 years from now. Aren’t you worried if you have incurable cancer, that the child will have lost its’ mother? Can you imagine going through chemo with a baby on your hip?

    I think you’re being very narrow minded and selfish about this. Please don’t have a child.

    In Australia where I come from, the age you can legally consent for sexual intercourse is 16, which completely erases their first sentence. The first paragraph rambles on about the chances of my partner being killed in a work related accident and questioning if I’d be covered. Even though I am only 16 I have family support if the worst were to happen and the support of the mine he works as due to him being listed as in a relationship, not to mention he would have a child, therefore certain laws and such would ensure the financial stability of both myself and our child. And let’s not forget, mine deaths are rare, especially amongst workers who don’t go ‘under ground’.
    The might concerning my hysterectomy is actually a most definitely, which is why I’m choosing to have a child now, or not at all. There would be no need to chemo either, as hysterectomy’s remove all caner.
    And last but not least, calling me narrow minded and selfish. I personally believe if I were either of those I wouldn’t allow myself to even think of putting myself in such a difficult situation.

    Sorry about the rant, I’d just love to hear what you think of the ‘answer’ and also any other answers you have to my question regarding whether to have a child or not.
    If you took your time to read this, then I thank you immensely, it really does mean so much. <3

    Any Cancer signs out there with Taurus – hows it going ?

  7. Benita March 22, 2013 at 9:35 am #

    We are 19 and have an 11 month old son together. We moved into his parents house because we couldn’t afford anything here. My boyfriends job isn’t very consistant and he doesn’t work many hours but up to this point didn’t want to get a new job with better hours and a more reliable paycheque. He is talking about finishing up the busy season for his aunt and then getting a new job. We both currently work for his aunt; I watch her daughter for a bit of money.

    He said when we move out I need to get a full time job to help pay the bills. The problem with this is that I’m looking at going back to school in september (online/blended part time for practical nursing). How am I going to be a mom, have a job, and finish my courses? It just sounds like too much and it’s really important for me to go to school to make a better life for us. I feel that if he got a better, more consistant job then we could get by until I graduated. What do I do?
    I don’t think he is dumb, his parents both have good paying jobs so I think he is used to having money around.

    The problem I have with getting a job isn’t that I don’t think I could do it but more because I want to be able to spend time with my son, it goes too fast and I don’t want to regret hardly seeing him.

    Why would I tear my son away from his family? That’s awful and I love him so much I would rather live on the street than give him up. And I definitely want to move out; it is by no means easy to live here.
    Some of you are acting as though I do nothing for this family and expect to get a free ride. Yes I decided to settle down at 19, and yes I’m young, but it isn’t the worst thing in the world now is it?

    I go to work every day. I watch a 3 year old and take care of our 11 month old. I’m pretty sure being a mom (or care giver) is the hardest job ever). Do I get a pay cheque for taking care of my son? No.

    I pull more than my fair share. I do everyones laundry, I clean, I wash bottles, I take care of our son, I get up at night with him (my boyfriend has never done a nighttime feeding even when he was unemployed). He goes to work for maybe 5 hours a day, he cooks dinner, and he plays video games. He has no desire to go back to school, he wants the free ride from his parents. I moved in here because he got us kicked out of my moms house, I was offered to stay with her but I didn’t want to break up my family.
    And about renting a place; he is looking into getting a new job at the end of this season, something stable. We have pretty good credit as well. There are a lot of rental properties here; but without some consistant income there is no way to tell how much we could afford. We have money put away, our son has an RESP. At least one of us NEEDS to go to school so we can have a better life in the long run. I want my son to know that he can get through anything; and I lead by example.

    And he wants to open a car shop, or do something along those lines, when I graduate. Where it would be the other way around (me paying bills while he did what he wanted).
    I forgot, I live in Canada and common law couples have the same laws as married couples in my province.

    my husband is thinking about joining the army. we have three small kids together. we are pretty sure the army is a good schoice for our family, although it will be hard. one reason we think this is a valid option is bc of the financial stability the army entails. we dont know his mos will be but he is going to study to try and score at least a 50 on his asvab. if someone knows the range of housing allowance as well as salary i would greatly appreciate your input!

    I am in a 6 year relationship with my boyfriend…we met when we were at college and now we r still together but not so happy….our happiness has always been temporary,we fight almost once a week sometimes more…we have always been very different,different backgrounds,family and financial but one thing we definitely have or had in common is our love….i come from a very stable family background,and very traditional too,family is everything to me…my boyfriend however is from a single parent home,which is not bad but i think it has affected him without him knowing it….he is so different from any man i know,he is my first love and i am his first,that’s the one great thing…i have been ready to settle down with him since 2 years ago cos we have been dating for so long and up till now he cannot seem to be ready to commit…he has been struggling financially,he can never keep a job for long because he only wants to have his own business and he has tried many times before which weren’t successful but he believes it will work out someday….he has a degree in arts because that is his passion and he believes he will be an artist someday…i however have never been truly happy about that,i am more of the traditional type of person where i prefer my bf or husband do something less risky and that will ensure stability…he however says stability will come on its own. I do admire his determination but it is also very very frustrating for me as a woman. I have stayed by his side for the entire time,even when we break up which we have done countless times but always get back together within a few days. Our arguments are very often and very very heated where he loses control and curses etc. which i think is so devastating. I also push him and say things to belittle him due to my frustration. Also , all i really want and always wanted was a traditional family man who was serious and intent on settling eventually. I am also a couple years older than him which makes it even harder, cos i feel like i am on another page in comparison to him. Recently, he also found out he is leaving the country as he was granted a scholarship to study art abroad and he is leaving soon, i just don’t know what to do,i had really hoped he would have married me but he has no money and no savings too because he never kept a stable job as he wanted and tried to do business n put money into it and didn’t make back any. I feel like he is everything I knew,i am scared to break up,i know things are not right between us,many times i feel i am keeping him back because he is so eccentric in what he wants to do with his life and i am so traditional and just want to have a simple and happy relationship,get married and have kids and i just love routine in life and he doesn’t, For that reason,we always argue, He admitted to me the other day that he is to blame,and I am not the wrong one,because he knows he isn’t stable but he is trying different business ideas,and he knows deep down he shouldn’t be in a rel’ship until he is more stable,and maybe i should leave him alone until he gets that stability. Thing is,he is leaving soon,in April and i had told him i will leave him cos he is leaving me to go abroad and live his ‘Art’ dream. I was so devastated when i found out he was leaving me to study,but i know that was selfish of me…i just don’t know what to do..i wish things could be easier between us,i wish he was financially stable so he could have married me,i love him deep down so much,but i know i also am bitter towards him and have resentment because of his decisions.Every year he promised me stability and it never came,every year I thought we were getting closer to a deeper commitment it never came,and I just keep getting older,I don’t know if to hold on to hope or if to just let him go and if it’s meant to be maybe later it will be…I jus’t don’t know…I feel like 6 years of my life will go towards nothing,i have been working and saving these past 4 years,hoping we would have got married and settled down,but he hasn’t had a stable job for three years as he believes having your own business is the way to go, and now he is leaving as he just miraculously got this grant..sometimes I wonder if this is God’s intervention to separate us since we could have never done it for more than a week….i know our problems stem from differences in family backgrounds,status,age and dreams….What should I do? what advice can you give me? Thank you for your help!

    My husband is Mexican and right now we live in Hawaii. I would love for my 2 young daughters to speak Spanish fluently and learn their Mexican culture too. My only concern is financial stability. I heard laundry mats are good to open. Or possibly a restaurant because my husband can cook very well. What other small businesses are good to open?

    My view in relationships is that love doesn’t really endure unless there’s trust and financial stability. The world we live in is ruthless and without paper, people’s relationships crumble.

    A woman I know of is most likely going to lose her kids due to abuse. Kentucky social services is talking about giving “indefinate” custody to one of the kids’ (divorced) grandparents or other relatives like an aunt or uncle.

    How will they determine who will get the children? Living conditions, location (as in how close to the mother), financial stability, etc? Can an unmarried, heterosexual, financially stable couple ask for custody? How much will small-town politics help someone who doesn’t deserve the kids gain custody? If custody is granted to someone and they move in with the mother, will social services re-take the kids?

    **Anything** you can tell me related to the above would be appreciated, especially if you can provide links.

    I am a senior manager in a Public Relations Consultancy. I have received a letter of enquiry from a student from a local university. The student needed some insights for a term paper that she’s working on. A few questions were highlighted in the letter and they were :
    • What exactly is PR?
    • Why is there a negative connotation attached to PR Profession?
    • How can PR help sustain the financial stability of company?

    I need to answer these 3 questions. Please help me.

    Background: I’m an Egyptian permanent resident of Canada with some financial stability, and I’d like to invite my Egyptian partner to come and stay with me here for two weeks. The Letter of Invitation is not required but it would help. I have no idea how to write it, but it’s obviously important to me that she manages to get the visitor’s visa. Any advice or guidelines?
    I do eventually plan to sponsor her permanently, but this is not possible at the moment. I just need to see her, even for two weeks.

    By satisfied i mean you own a home, you have 2 cars, you take your 2 or so vacations every year, you’re able to feed your family, you’re capable of affording necessities and certain luxuries. Also name the state where you currently reside because financial stability differs from state to state for example living in NYC maybe making $100,000 is not even stable but in Georgia it may means you’re living in upper class. What yearly income would you consider stable in accordance with the above terms?

    With 1 out of 3 women getting married.
    I didnt know black women used to be less likely to get married there in the first place. Did feminism took hold earlier among black women ? Were they faster in gaining their indipendence and financial stability than their white sisters ?
    draecoiram, black marriage was fine BEFORE feminism.

    But in your opinion, what’s a good age?

    I’m thinking of joining either to get my wife and I (and baby) some financial stability. However, I die a little inside every time I think about the possibility I may have to deploy and won’t get to see them for up to six months. Is there any jobs I should be looking for in either faction that can close to guarantee a stay close to my family? Or is this just silly wishful thinking?

    The condition of the financial stability and management of the organization is imperative to using cost per output and outcome calculations. Cost per output and outcome calculations can provide insight into a human service organization’s financial management plan in order to evaluate whether or not the goals and objectives are being met to provide the services which support the mission. Outputs and outcomes provide the information about the services, how they are implemented, and whether or not they are financially sound to the organization. Divisions of labor, services, and programming can be determined in order to ensure funds are allocated properly. Determinations can be made taking into account fixed and variable costs and how those affect the revenues. Quality of services can also be
    lori hess: Quality of services can also be addressed using outputs and outcomes which determine the level of services and how the quality is affected through an increase in funding or a cutback.

    My husband has become a part of a business called Market America. He is doing well for just recently starting out. I stay at home and take care of our 3 children. The thing is, is that he has meeting every Tuesday and Thursday nights and at least 2 Saturdays a month. When he is home from his day job he is on the phone or has people over talking business.

    I know he is doing this to better our financial stability but I am at the point that I think I am starting to resent him for it. He does so much with our family but he isn’t really there because of “business” calls ect……

    I do not want to fight with him. I want to be supportive but I also want him to realize that we are just important now as we were before and will be when he is successful.

    If anyone has been in this situation please tell me how I can talk to him to let him know I am behind him 100% but he needs to be behind his family just as much?

    Thank you.

    I am in hell, my home and financial stability is wavering as I write this, and instead of
    constructive compassion, I get every bitter moron in the universe responding to me? I don’t need your hostility, I really don’t, choke on it!!!! God help me through to the other side, and anyone who can offer me a prayer or a good word is welcomed to.

    I am currently searching for a new job and am concerned because my financial stability will only sustain me through the end of this month. I am curious if anyone know how long it takes after submitting a resume to typically receive a response back if the hiring company is interested in your resume. I am not sitting around waiting for anyone, being that I am continuing my job search, but I am still curious, as I have sent out almost fifty resumes and have not gotten a response in the past week and a half….it’s just a little frustrating.

    I think Germany will become a sexy destination for Spanish, Argentine, Brazilians etc with the arrival of Pep there. They will be provided with a league outside of la liga that’s is more possession based, tactically more astute and with financial stability (outside of sugar daddies). Joakim Loewe will most likely step down from the German national team and coach a club team which could make the Bundesliga even more attractive. This will cause a serious blow to the PL who so heavily on foreign players since we know they cannot produce players worth a damn! Thoughts?

    Even tho I am incapable of providing financial stability for my girlfriend, I’ve been with her for 10 months now and we are serious to the point where we talk about marriage a lot. I love her and I want to spend the rest of my life with her…. Should I wait, or should I follow my heart?

    I am doing an essay for my homework. I have done some thorough research and read various scientific journals published by some of the most respected scientist in modern day genetic engineering and it seems to me that homosexuals do not contribute in ANY way towards economic growth or evolution of the human species.

    In fact, the opposite is prooven to be correct. For example, most homosexuals come from broken homes and more often than not, were abused by their father. Such families do not have financial stability and the individual relies entirely on government benefits.

    Homosexuals also slow down evolution as well as crucial scientific advances and have been responsible for the eurozone crisis.

    Alright, so my question is, I’m 17 and I’ve got a decent income for a 17 year old. Now I’m looking to get a car, but there isn’t a way to get a loan at 17. So I have to have someone cosign it. Now is my financial stability enough when getting a loan, or does my cosigner also have to have extra income? Don’t tell me to “pay cash” you don’t know my situation don’t try and fix it.

    In aquiring a degree one anticipates a fulfilling career and high renumeration for ones efforts.
    So if we all had one, afforded by a fair and equatable academic system, who would be attracted to the mundane, routine and poorly paid positions?
    Lack of opportunity and financial stability prevents some from continuing academic learning because of their need to provide a living income.
    Wealthy parents or ready access to funds overcomes this hurdle and so allows one to concentrate on the academia ahead.

    Back to money talks, yet again, and again and always?

    And I’m not very physically attractive myself so I know I’m kind of thinking out of my league. Intelligence matters, financial stability matters, religion and ethics matters but all must be wrapped up in a good looking package for me to be interested. Is that shallow?

    I really need to generate more income. My current job affords a lot of financial stability, but it just doesn’t pay all the well. I am concerned about the U.S. economy and the direction the US seems to be going.

    I thought a more upmarket brand of sock would bode well for me in my endeavours to get a personal loan for a boat, but could it be that they saw my new fashionable socks as a threat to their organisation’s financial stability?

    I am in my first year of college, and am wondering what I should major in. I know everyone says to major in what you like, but let’s get realistic – we’re in tough economic times, and I want to have a career that will surely provide financial stability.

    By financial stability, I mean having money to pay all of my bills, and extra money for leisure. What is a career that fits my “criteria”? I plan on going to graduate school for my Master’s Degree (if that helps in suggesting a career).

    Thanks.

    I’d rather have financial stability. Love is too fickle & doesn’t pay the bills.
