Nothing tests romance more than mismanaged finances. But typically people regard their money as personal business. At the same time, you know the way a man manages his money can potentially ruin a long term serious relationship or marriage. We asked our Facebook followers when they start monitoring their partners and how they spend their money. See what they had to say.

Nancy: The way they handle money says a lot about them. I’d keep a cautious eye out.

Shamika: Oh I definitely keep an eye on it. Financial problems are one of the major reasons for break ups. If you have a financially irresponsible partner, that can cause all sorts of problems.

    I didn’t pay attention at first while I was dating my husband, but I wish I had. He made partial payments on our bills (which were in my name) and was constantly buying himself new clothes with MY money. I left, trying to rebuild my credit while he’s mooching off one of his relatives.

    I don’t. Men are quick to label you as a gold-digger. I have never gotten to the point where I need to. For some reason the men I’ve has serious relations with are very miser and barely want to spend $ to see the world spin.

    I understand helping someone with their finances as far as advice, being a Financial Adviser, Accountant, etc….. but to maintain and “monitor” someone’s (especially a man) finances, I don’t understand. What kind of adult can’t control their own money?
