The 11 BEST Posts About Love and Money

best posts about love and money

It’s Valentine’s Day and that means you’re going to be seeing a lot of pink and red along with half the people hating life/being ambivalent and the other half of people being sickeningly sweet and in love. What camp will you be in?

Aaron and I will be keeping it low-key by maybe ordering a pizza, getting sick on ice-cream sundaes, and settling in for a marathon of Sister Wives on Netflix because you know, nothing says romance quite like polygamy! I keep telling Aaron that we’re going to get him some Brother Husbands and he said he’s okay with it as long as they do housework. ;)

Because of all this love ‘n’ stuff, I’ve rounded up my 11 Favorite Posts about Love and Money…

11.Quiz: Are You an Over-Buyer or an Under-Buyer? by Gretchen Rubin at The Happiness Project.  While the intent of Gretchen Rubin’s Over-Buyer/Under-Buyer Quiz is not specifically about relationships the value of her post with regard to relationships is undeniable. Have you and your partner take this quiz to gain insights into how you each spend and approach money.

Here’s a post I wrote that totally applies to what we’re talking about: The Love and Money Mix – 3 Tips For Making It Work.
