Your guide to love and money
Whether we like it or not, money plays an important part in all areas of our lives. It can have an impact on our quality of life, mental health and even relationships.
That’s why talking about your finances, however dull it may seem, is so important. Especially when you decide to share your life (and money) with someone.
In our latest guide, we discuss ways you could approach talking about your finances and the conversations you should be having, including:
- How to understand each other's spending habits and financial priorities
- What your common goals are and how you'll achieve them
- How much you'll both need to save for retirement, and when you think that might be
- What happens if you split up or divorce?
We wrote this guide to give you useful information about financial planning, but it's not personal advice. Please consider taking advice if unsure. If you choose to invest, just remember that all investments can go down as well as up in value, so you could get back less than you put in. You can’t normally access money in a pension until age 55 (57 from 2028).
