Paying together = staying together.

Whether you're splitting the bill for takeout and a movie rental or planning a gorgeous post-COVID vacation, money actually comes up a lot in a relationship.

And with Valentine's Day on the way, I'm super curious — how do you and your partner manage money together?

Maybe you've set up joint accounts for particular things, like household bills or saving for your future — or joint accounts for everything, because you want to share it all.

Or perhaps you have a genius budgeting method, like an app or a collaborative spreadsheet, that helps you both stay on track with your shared goals.

Or maybe you set some money ground rules together — like taking turns paying for dates or always talking through purchases over a certain dollar amount — so you both know you're on the same page when it comes to your finances.
