    OP. There's no need to go asking a date about finances before the appropriate time comes up all by itself.

    Just protect yourself in the meantime by not making silly choices ... Such as living with someone before you know them properly. Or even worse.. Having a baby with someone you don't know well.

    By the time in-depth financial discussions come up you will hopefully know the other person really well and can make a decision on your future based on all factors (not just whether they rent etc).

    I agree with you. However in some cases it *can* be a sign that the person has made better choices in their life (to pay attention in school, to work hard, study, get set before they have kids).

    I have friends that stuffed around in school and after, had unplanned kids young and as a result are struggling now. It doesn't mean they aren't nice people however their situations are a result of their decision making.
    (No this doesn't mean all young parents made bad choices or that all people who are struggling did. Or that wealthy people make better partners and made good choices).

    lol passive aggressive much? I was simply agreeing that some don't always go for money and can still have a good marriage. You haven't met anyone like that? That's nice I'm confused as I thought we were saying the same thing??? You believe that money doesn't make you a better person, no? I'm saying the same thing. Confused lol
