Today’s video is going to be a little controversial and to be perfectly honest… it might piss a few people off.
“Money shouldn’t matter if you’re in love,” my critics will say.
But it does.
The reality is that money DOES matter. Find out exactly why I insist that a man’s financial health is so important when it comes to a serious relationship in today’s video.
Facts are facts.
Just like mental and physical health, financial health has a HUGE impact on your relationship.
I’m not saying you should be “all about the Benjamins,” but there are a few things that you need to consider before you go “all in” with someone.
How has money affected your relationships in the past? And what have you done about it? Share your stories in the comments below!
PS: When it comes to attracting and keeping a high quality man, physical attraction just doesn’t cut it. You have to know how to trigger his emotional attraction if you want things to become serious with a man that’s “in-demand.”

Most people out there say you should never marry for money, and always marry for love.
That is definitely not true.
Did you know one of the top reasons for divorce is due to financial stress? Anyone who says money doesn’t matter in a relationship either has a ton of it, or has never been in a long-term relationship.
According to a recent survey, 35% of all respondents experiencing relationship stress said money was the primary cause.
Studies also show that disagreements about other issues like sex, household chores, or how much time spent together doesn’t predict breakups. But money definitely does predict relationship success.
With that said, I’m not proposing you should ever be a gold digger.
Go for a man you’re in love with, but don’t be naïve about the challenges you’ll face if he is absolutely terrible with money. Try to get a handle on those issues before they become a much bigger problem. Turning a blind eye to those issues can lead to waking up one day in complete financial misery and a relationship that’s falling apart.
What I’m encouraging you to do is to be smart and realistic about the impact financials have on a relationship.
By the way, this is a two way street here. This is the twenty-first century and women are equally responsible for a family’s finances.
Regardless of who is the “breadwinner,” I feel strongly that it’s important to understand each other’s financial philosophy. Here are a few steps to help you with that:
1. Don’t be terrified to talk about money.
We all have egos and we sometimes don’t like to talk about the challenges we have in our own lives.
But if he has $250,000 thousand dollars in college debt and bought a brand new Audi last week, it is appropriate to ask him how he plans on paying off his debt.
Does he even have a plan?
What are some things you can do as a couple to save money?
These are the types of questions that are appropriate to talk about once you’re further along in a relationship.
2. Watch out for signs that he’s terrible with money.
If he has a gambling problem… that is a major problem and red flag!
If he has crazy credit card debt… that is a major problem and red flag!
If his lifestyle doesn’t match his paycheck… red flag!
3. Find a guy who’s financially savvy, not just a guy who is rich.
I really don’t care if you marry or date a rich guy. Just because he has money now doesn’t mean he’s going to have money in the future. I would rather you date someone who spends his money frugally, invests in his home, and lives within his means.
So let me ask you, how has money affected your relationships in the past? Leave a comment below.
