February is filled with candy hearts, red roses and romance. For those who still enjoy celebrating Valentine’s Day (there are some naysayers out there) it is a nice time to be reminded of and to remind your partner that you appreciate and love them. I think it is nice that we put some time aside to celebrate love and relationships even if, to some, it feels like an obligation.
It also got me thinking. We don’t have these types of obligatory holidays for money conversations or to go over financial goals. It would be nice if once or twice a year Hallmark and Godiva got together to remind us that staying organized and being communicative about finances with our significant other is an extremely important part of keeping a healthy relationship.
