You don’t have to be a shameless gold digger to be in a relationship based on money. In fact, there doesn’t have to be a ton of money for this type of relationship to exist. Some couples just use money as a buffer. Every moment is spent out at a restaurant, out at a movie, wine tasting, or on vacation. On vacations, every moment is booked with activities. Money can buy you activities and activities can keep you and your partner from ever really having a heart to heart conversation. You want to know how you and your partner get along with nothing to do but talk, because in this economy, you never know when that may happen!
