TALKING ABOUT MONEY CAN BE AN EMOTIONALLY CHARGED SUBJECT FOR COUPLES.  BUT, IT'S STILL AN IMPORTANT CONVERSATION.  WHETHER YOU'RE A NEW COUPLE THINKING ABOUT THE NEXT STEPS--OR ALREADY SETTLED IN A HAPPY MARRIAGE--IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY, OR TOO LATE, TO HAVE THAT TALK.  CITIBANK'S "WOMEN AND COMPANY" OFFERS THESE TIPS:  FIRST, BE HONEST.  BE OPEN AND CLEAR ABOUT YOUR EXPECTATIONS--BUT ALSO REMEMBER TO CONSIDER YOUR PARTNER'S EXPECTATIONS, AS WELL.  AND, TRY TO USE "I"-STATEMENTS--NOT "YOU"-STATEMENTS--IN ORDER TO AVOID POINTING THE FINGER.  IN ADDITION, YOU SHOULD AGREE TO WORK TOGETHER.  IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT MANAGING THE HOUSEHOLD-FINANCES IS A TWO-PERSON JOB.  ONCE YOU'VE COMMITTED TO WORKING TOGETHER, YOU CAN DEVELOP A PLAN THAT IS MORE LIKELY TO REPRESENT EACH PERSON'S INTERESTS AND GOALS.  ALSO, YOU SHOULD DISCUSS YOUR FINANCIAL-STYLES.  ARE YOU A SAVER--BUT YOUR PARTNER LIVES PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK?  WHAT ARE EACH OF YOUR SHORT-TERM--AND LONG-TERM--GOALS?  FINALLY, SET UP A SCHEDULE TO KEEP THE DISCUSSION GOING--MONTHLY DATES TO REVIEW YOUR ACCOUNTS, AND YEARLY REVIEWS OF YOUR PROGRESS TOWARD YOUR GOALS.  FOR MORE HELPFUL FINANCIAL-TIPS AND -INFORMATION, VISIT "WOMEN-AND-CO"-DOT-COM.
