In MY marriage we have our own personal spending account and A joint spending/ savings account. Being married does not take away individuality

THIS part: "As men we're always trying to figure out the best way to deliver information so that our wives don't take it the wrong way." HOW and WHEN you say are just as important as WHAT you say.

Great show! I think it would have been also beneficial if you had a couple thats been married 15 year plus. Thanks again!

Dear Black Love Team, thank you so much for creating this series. I am having a difficult day today. I have lost my job, I am anxious, and I am worried about my future.
It was nice to listen to the couples. I love that they tackle serious issues, and can do so with laughter.
Please keep this up. Thank you for including different kinds of relationships among your guests. The hosts are wonderful, and they interact well with the guests. I also love how they are with each other (the hosts). Everyone looks so comfortable.

This is excellent. Black folks/people of color can be uncomfortable discussing money but it's very important. Now that I'm over 40. I have to know a guy's financial situation. I've been in relationships where the guys didn't have much and I stepped up during most of the relationship but at this stage in my life I'm not willing to be the bread winner but I can be a HELP mate.

I find this so interesting. I have the same situation. My partner was taken care of by his family all his life. He never had to manage his finances and lived at home until we moved in together. I however, grew up poor. I always had to take care of myself and had experience living on my own. I seem to be the person controlling the finances to make sure bills are paid and we have savings. He had to come to terms with his finances and his spending habits. He realized how much he was being covered by his family. It's nice seeing couples who grew up in different financial backgrounds and how they deal with it.

I really enjoyed this session. I loved the fact that I was able to laugh while learning at the same time. Talking about Finances should be a topic that is NORMALIZED in our culture and this session absolutely did that. It was spot on!! Great job team! #couchconversations #blacklove

This was fun to watch! We just filmed an episode about managing finances, especially as a couple who met when we were already grown and set in our ways. We loved that yall took what can be a really heavy topic and brought some levity to it.
