Q: I want to live—meaning spend—for the present, and my partner wants to live—meaning save—for the future. Is our relationship doomed?

Diana says....
If it’s any consolation, conflicting money values is very common in relationships. But there is nothing attractive about not having enough to enjoy the future. You need to talk things over and find a compromise. Set aside time every month to sit and chat about your financial dreams and goals—and realistic ways to get you there. The power of two is a lot stronger than taking diverging money paths.
