I recieved an email from a person who writes for a MAJOR magazine, asking me the following:
I’m interested in talking to people who are, or have ever been, in a situation where they’ve been at odds with their spouse or significant other about money — attitudes toward money, and specifically, debt, and ways of managing money and debt. For example, shopaholic Wife tries to hide her expensive shoe purchases from thrifty Husband. Or a man lies to his fiance about how much debt (credit-card debt, student-loan debt, etc.) he has — or at least fails to mention it for some time. You get the idea – broadly speaking, the issue of debt compatibility.
Do you think you would be a good fit for the story (or do you know anyone who would be)? I’d love to chat. Let me know if you’re able to set up a phone interview.
Fortunately, this is not me. However, I told the columnist that I would post this on my blog to see if any of you have been in this situation. If you have and would be interested in talking with the columnist about it, please send me an email with the words “DEBT COMPATIBILITY ARTICLE” in the subject line and I’ll be happy to forward it to the columnist. Please act fast because these articles usually have a deadline attached to them.
