A budget expert has revealed the money-focused questions you should always ask a potential partner to assess their “mindset and goals” — and make sure your relationship doesn’t end in tears… or bankruptcy.
Caelyn Sutton, from Atlanta, Georgia, took to TikTok to share a slideshow of the most important things you need to know before deciding if your date is really for you.
They include questioning your future partner about their “giving” budget and “splurges,” as well as what they would spend their money on if they won the lottery.
But would you ask these questions before taking your relationship to the next stage?

In the mail, the entrepreneur, who passes CorporateCae on the video sharing platform, revealed what people should ask their potential partners.
Cae, who regularly shares financial tips and tricks, has created a slideshow to collect the nine most essential questions.
But she was quick to emphasize that these apply to both men and women.
The first was, “On a scale of 1 to 10, how well do you manage your money (in terms of budgeting, knowledge of your credit score, debt).”
And this was followed by, “What are your short-term and long-term financial goals?”
But then it starts to get a little less simple.
Cae urged daters to ask, “If your finances were a movie, what would it be called?”
Other topics to consider include questions about what they “spend” on, what drives their financial decisions, and whether they include “giving” in their budget.

She said you should also get some romantic interest in defining what “financial freedom” means to them before asking what they “want to know more about.”
Last but not least, the financial coach said the closing question should be, “If you won the lottery tomorrow, what three things would you spend money on first?”
Cae posted the post next to a caption that read, “Asking to help you get to know your date or partner’s mindset and goals.”
But she didn’t elaborate on what the best answers to these questions would be.
