This new year, I want to take some courses or even start my own business. When I told my husband, he got defensive and said that he didn’t think I should ever quit my job just because I didn’t feel fulfilled. We are both hurt. How can we get past this?
I have been dating my non-nesting partner for two years. I have recently come into realization that we never had an opportunity to talk about our financial goals and retirement plans. I am scared about bringing this up with my partner, especially since we each have our respective nesting spouses and do not share finances with each other. How can I start this discussion with my partner?
My boyfriend and I are planning to live together in about a year, and he asked me that when we move in, I have to stop receiving any and all financial support from my parents. We were raised in a completely different financial upbringing. And I’m not sure if this is a reasonable ultimatum. Is it normal to merge your finances when you move in together?
