Upbringing affects financial attitudes

Sturgeon Bay financial counselor Gay Pustaver says a person’s upbringing is one of the most common topics brought up during the over 3,000 sessions she has hosted over the years.  Regardless of age or income level, spending and saving differences between couples come up as they share finances with someone else for the first time. Although Money Management Counselors does not specialize in couples therapy, Pustaver says it often seems that way if money was not discussed beforehand.

Pustaver says many are not aware of their bad habits until it is brought up by their partner. You can listen to the entire interview with Gay Pustaver online with this story.
