Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor.

When D entered my life, one of my plans for this blog was to write about aspects of personal finance as a couple. I didn’t get a chance to really work on this idea until now — and that’s a good thing because it’s been nearly an year and a half since I met D and this has been ample time for me to understand these aspects better.

Here’s an example for how varied our personal finance experiences are:

D hasn’t ever applied for a loan and doesn’t know how to apply for one. Compared with D, I am a grandmaster — I’ve had credit card debt, an employer loan to repay that credit-card debt, a personal loan, and two car loans.

I plan to explore more on these lines (how individual financial beliefs, philosophies, experiences, and goals mold in the relationship of marriage) in future posts. Let me know if this sounds interesting.




Thanks for reading this article. I'd love to hear your opinion. Please use the comments section below to share your thoughts. I frequently write new articles that also cover several other aspects of personal finance including credit cards, financial goals, health insurance, income tax, life insurance, mutual funds, retirement planning, and much more.
