Money and Relationships: Live chat with AARP's LifeTuner



November 17, 2009 – Comments (0)

Way back in 2000, one of the most popular articles on was a Financial Manifesto my wife and I wrote soon after we were married.  The popularity of that article underscores a well-known truth: Money is among the biggest sources of tension in a relationship. 

It was recently reaffirmed by a study from AARP's LifeTuner (which seeks to wisen-up the young-adult crowd when it comes to money). More than two-thirds of the respondents (68%, to be exact) said that money caused tension in a relationship or friendship. 

To discuss the pitfalls -- and solutions -- LifeTuners has asked Fool Dayana Yochim (author of our Couples & Cash book) and yours truly to participate in a live chat on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Here are the details (from the LifeTuner site). What we'll talk about:

•    Reducing money and relationship conflicts
•    Avoiding peer pressure overspending
•    Recognizing how family shapes your money management
•    Finding friends that can help you better manage your money
•    Managing love and money issues
