Many Americans have magical thinking when it comes to the intersection of their hearts and wallets. Unhealthy attitudes about love and money are fueled from an early age. Young children are told classic fairy tales, such as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. The morale of these stories is a woman should wait to be emotionally and financially rescued by her prince, and to be an attractive man, you need to be filthy rich. In reality, partners need to work together to make, manage and invest their money.
