SERIES: How To Be Broke – Part 04

Welcome to the latest series here at the wildly popular! In this series, I will be sharing the top ways that people end up being financially broke. If you want to be BROKE, be sure to follow every single one of these tremendous ideas. On the other hand, if you want to win with your money – do the OPPOSITE of these amazing tips!

Part 04  Let your spouse handle all of the money and money decisions.

This is a great way to become broke! Refuse to participate in any money related decisions. Here is a great list of excuses you can use:

  • “My spouse is just so much better with money than I am.”
  • “Dealing with money stresses me out and gives me a headache.”
  • “They spend most of it so let them deal with it.”
  • “As long as I have enough for what I want, do whatever you want with the rest.”

Since we know that financial struggles and divorce are at least first cousins, be sure to shut down when your spouse wants to discuss the finances. Let them carry all of the load themselves. Marriage is grand. Divorce is at least a hundred grand. This is a sure-fire way to ensure you remain broke.

QUESTION: If you are married, do YOU truly work together with your spouse on money related decisions?
