    It can work..even if a couple are opposite in finance. My partner only saves to buy property…no nvestements of any other sort….whilst I own no properties and only prefer investments of stocks and bonds. We accept each other,s ways because we know what each other is doing and respect it. Some of our happiest times is when we both not working or only one working btw jobs and we on a budget ( using envelopes even with a set amount in)! And when we get something or do something it feels much more ‘valuable’ than when we both working and flush!
