ER Doc Advisor - Financial Planning & Taxes for Emergency Physicians

EP 61: Doctors, Dating, & Divorce

You have spent 6-8 years becoming an ER Doc. You’ve taken on significant debt. You’ve sacrificed your social life. Your time. Sleep. All of this magnifies the emotions involved in dealing with money. And somewhere along the way, another party may have entered the picture: a significant other. They, too, have their own complex relationship with money. For that reason, many believe mixing love and money is a recipe for disaster. But are they right?

If you are at all interested in how to navigate money talks with your partner, this episode is for you. We discuss prenups, merging bank accounts, picking your battles, from the first date all the way to the “I do’s.”

Topics Discussed:     
  • The amount of people who have tried a dating app.
  • The busiest month for dating apps.
  • How to get your spouse more involved with finances.
  • Why finances should be something you talk about during the “get to know you” phase.
  • How to bring finances up with your partner.
  • Why you should consider a prenup if you have more money than your spouse.
  • What a prenup can’t dictate.
  • When you should bring up money in your relationship.
