Money is a personal and an emotional topic. Talking about money can be stressful and is almost never only about money. Culturally, we are comfortable discussing our personal, professional, health, social, even our intimate relations with more ease than discussing money matters.  In a relationship, matters of the wallet can be just as important as matters of the heart. After all, money decisions impact every relationship from the newlywed days of getting a joint bank account, sharing a home to the retirement phase.  Having a partner by your side can be a great help in achieving financial stability and retirement readiness, but first you both must have the often-daunting “money talk.” In this interactive session, we will demystify the principles of personal financial literacy and explore strategies to have open, candid conversations about our relationships with money.
