When I got first started dating my now spouse, I was surprised to hear that he knew next to nothing about handling money. He was really struggling to make ends meet, and I was really frustrated that I might have to take on all of his financial problems if we were to get married. I knew that I needed to do what I could to make things better, so I started working day and night to learn the tricks of handling money. I started going to classes with my spouse to help him to understand the basics, and it really benefited both of us. Within a few months, he was spending less money, and I felt more confident working with him.
