The New Love Deal on BeliefNet

After twenty years as a judge in matrimonial court, I have watched so many couples suffer a bombardment of frustration, betrayal, and anger toward the person they once loved enough to marry. And I have realized how much better things would have been had there been open and revealing communication in the beginning of their relationship. Here are eight critical needs that must be met through open and honest discussion – and perhaps in a prenuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement – if your relationship is to survive for the long term.

Today’s Relationships Require New Rules

Gemma Allen, a prominent family law attorney; Judge Michele Lowrance, a long-time judge in the divorce division who is now a mediator; and Terry Savage, a famed financial writer and money advisor, explore the financial and practical issues that couples confront, and the agreements that can resolve these differences and protect relationships in The New Love Deal: Everything You Must Know Before Marrying, Moving In, or Moving On.

While society recognizes the many changes in relationships, such as same sex marriage and record numbers of couples cohabiting, there is a lack of legal guidelines and procedures for navigating these murky waters. And as a result, breakups are messy– and not only from an emotional standpoint.

The New Love Deal acknowledges these changes and offers direction for making relationships succeed; or if dissolving, in a way that prevents additional tears and pain by integrating the power of communication with the power of rationality to create the best outcomes.

“We believe that creating the appropriate agreement will not only protect your relationship, but enhance it because you are no longer fearful of the unspoken issues that might eventually divide you,” argues Gemma Allen.

credit.com: How Couples Can Stop Fighting About Money

A young, married (happy) couple who were expecting a baby began a discussion about financial priorities this way: He got a bonus, cashed it and surprised her with a new state-of-the-art TV. When he told her the “good news,” she burst into tears, which progressed to sobbing. They had no washer or dryer, and she had to wash clothes at a coin laundry…and dreaded the thought of having to do it with a baby in tow. (The TV went back immediately; a washer and dryer were delivered; she recalls it as the best Christmas present ever — she had never wanted anything that badly.)

There are lots of ways to open a financial discussion with your spouse. For many of us, the default choice is waiting for the subject to come up on its own.

A Loaf of Bread, a Jug of Wine & a Credit Report

Personal finance expert Terry Savage says there’s a better way. She also said that couples often have the idea that a money talk isn’t romantic. She disagrees. “What is more romantic than a conversation demonstrating trust, respect and concern for each other’s well-being?” Wine and candlelight, you say? She says there’s no reason they can’t be combined. “Have a glass of wine, print out both of your credit reports, and exchange them,” she suggests. Or check out even more credit data (you can check your credit scores for free at Credit.com) and show your partner how creditors see you.

Savage, co-author of The New Love Deal: Everything You Must Know Before Marrying, Moving In or Moving On, says the haze of romance blinds us to many issues of financial compatibility. In fact, she says a lot of us are more comfortable with being sexually intimate than we are being financially intimate. And part of the reason is we don’t really know how to do that. The book, co-authored by a judge, Michele Lowrance, and a divorce attorney, Gemma Allen, aims to provide a road map for helping couples to understand one another (and themselves).

There are only two kinds of people in this world, spenders and savers, and for better or worse they tend to marry each other.
