The Fiance Guru: Couples should learn to work together with their finances.

3AW’s Finance Guru says couples should work together when it comes to their finances.

Scott Haywood told 3AW’s Tom Elliott you shouldn’t leave it up to your partner to manage your finances, it should be a joint effort.

“I think it’s time that women start to have open conversations with their husbands or their partners and eliminate, what i’m calling, the ostrich effect,” The Finance Guru told Tom Elliott.

The ostrich effect means that when it comes to money they prefer to ignore the truth, which might be your partners business debt, personal debt, overdrafts etc.

“All the money stresses, all the superannuation balances … All an ostrich does is put its head in the sand.”
