People Marry Financial Opposites

Is Your Significant Other Your Financial Opposite?

I feel like there's always a bit of truth to the phrase "opposites attract." According to Farnoosh Torabi on the Anderson show, people are also attracted to their financial opposites.

Seeing as money is the biggest issue that couples fight about, having different mental attitudes toward cash can definitely cause a lot of friction in relationships. I'm wondering if this theory is true for you — are you dating or married to your financial opposite?

Ah! My live-in boyfriend and I can't be more opposite it's hard sometimes. I am glad it's more common than not.

That is SO weird. My partner's father is an accountant, so he was raised in a very financially literate house. Sure, I was told to save and everything, but money still burns a hole in my pocket, especially now that I'm working full time. It's a good thing we're waiting until he gets a full-time job too to settle down!
