At some point, possibly when the restaurant bill arrives, or when the taxi driver wants his fare, reality kicks in.

Despite our 21st-century perspective of gender equality, there are many relationships where typical “male” and typical “female” roles and expectations lurk in the background. Men may still regard themselves as the breadwinner, or the financial head-of-household. Myths about a supposed inability of women to deal with money matters may persist. Nowadays women are spreading their wings, becoming career professionals and top-notch earners like never before. Traditional roles in any given relationship may need to be re-thought. Various aspects of a relationship’s financial workload – whether it is bringing home the bacon, coming up with a smart investment plan or budgeting for holidays and groceries – are all part of the big picture called money management. Women are becoming more financially savvy than ever before. Learn in this financial relationships guide how to work constructively with your partner, family and friends to create a healthy cooperative environment to discuss money matters. Your financial talents and input are significant!
