Financial freedom is much more than having money. It is the ability to make life decisions without worrying about financial constraints.
Financial independence is the point at which you have enough money in savings and investments to support yourself for the rest of your life. You can get there in your 60s. You can get there in your 30s. Age is irrelevant.
Personal finance is learning to budget, spend mindfully, and find a balance between seizing the day and saving for the future..
Being good with money does not mean you don’t spend it. And not spending it does not make you good with money..
It is definitely awkward talking about money with somebody close to you. I suggest you speak often, keep the conversation light and most importantly, understand your partners relationship with money before judging them..
