Charlyuk123 Posted June 20, 2017 Share Posted June 20, 2017 Hi there, I'm hoping some of you may be able to provide some advice on relationship finances In our current situation my (long term) partner has a small amount of money to invest however not quite enough to reach the threshold on her own which means investing with someone else. I don't currently have the funds to do this but given a recent pay increase within a small period of saving I will be able to. Due to my partner wanting to make this happen sooner rather than later instead of waiting for me she is currently looking outside of our relationship to team up with a male friend and work colleague to invest financially with. I'm feeling uneasy about this and feel as though we should be working in a partnership together to get ahead financially. I'm wondering how others would feel if their significant other invested with someone other than them, and with a friend of the opposite sex? Of course I trust my partner I guess it just makes me feel a little less significant and that we're not working as a team to grow our financial future together- it feels very separate. Purchasing a first home is something big and a milestone that I want to achieve together. I feel like I'd be watching something I want so much for us together unfold with another man in my place and I'm unsure if I'm being unrealistic by not being thrilled by the idea. Any advice would be much appreciated Thankyou Link to comment
