We’ve broken the cards down into four different categories, each one getting a little more specific, and intimate, than the last. This way you can dip your toe into the conversation first, rather than diving into the deep end.
1. Do you…?
Start things off slow with some simple yes or no questions. These questions are designed to help you get to know each other’s attitudes towards money and scratch the surface of how each of you prioritize your spending.
2. Would you rather…?
Now that you have a baseline for each other’s spending and saving preferences, we can start digging a little deeper into the conversation with everyone’s favourite party game: Would You Rather. Answer the prompts on the cards by choosing one of the options listed to give your partner an even better idea of what your financial priorities are.
3. How much…?
Full transparency, this is the part of the game where your investment could face a little volatility. Now that you both know where you prefer to put your money, it’s time to start getting into specifics. We know this can sound a bit intimidating, but even just talking through ball park numbers of certain expenses will help both of you understand if your financial goals are compatible or best pursued separately.
4. This is awkward, but…?
Okay guys, it’s time. You’ve inched off the Band-Aid half way, and now it’s time to take the rest off in one final tug. Like the category mentions, these questions can be a bit awkward—but like we promised in the beginning, the more you communicate about money, the easier it will be to make plans together and set both of you up for financial success, whatever that means to each of you.
