Money has a huge impact on relationships, so we've partnered with New York Life to get you and your partner on the same financial page.

We know so much about our partners, from their family backgrounds and their quirks to their favorite and not-so-favorite things. But their financial attitudes, behavior patterns, and goals tend to be more of a mystery. Speaking the same "financial language" can have a huge impact on any partnership. Before you and your significant other merge your lives, take our quiz independently (no peeking!) then find out how you both stack up. With advice and solutions from New York Life, we'll show you how to work, spend, save, and plan together for happily ever after.
