And given that June is tied with September as the most popular time of year to get married, we figure a lot of you are too. That’s why we’ve decided to turn our attention to the ever-delicate topic of love and money for this month’s call to action.
Managing your own finances is hard enough—and when you factor in a loved one’s unique beliefs, priorities and preferences, it gets even tougher.
So we want to know: What surprised you most about your significant other’s finances—and how did it influence your own approach to money?
Maybe he let his credit card debt balloon, which, in turn, inspired you to take control of your own balances. Or perhaps her diligence in paying off her mortgage early gave you the resolve to reach your own financial goals this much faster.
Whatever your experience, please share it in the comments below—and you’ll be entered for a chance to win $100! And be sure to use your email address when you comment—it won’t be visible to other users—so we can notify you should you win.
Open only to legal residents of the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. Premium users are not eligible. Contest running from June 2, 2014, through June 20, 2014. We will select the most compelling entry as the winner, and his or her story may be published on the site.
