If there are two things that don’t mix well, it’s love and money. Financial woes can be the undoing of even the strongest couples. It’s nice to help each other out, but exactly what that means can be tough to figure out, especially if you’re in a financially uneven partnership.

It’s a wonderful thing about being in a partnership: you learn from one another.
