The dating scene can be rough when you’re financially conscious. Your priorities of saving and investing might be the complete opposite of your potential date’s priorities of spending and living for today.
As a wise man once said though, there are plenty of fish in the sea. If you keep at it, you’ll find your match.
I’ve invited two guests on the show today that know all about love and money. Gwen Merz and Erik Tozier found each other one year ago based on their love of financial independence and personal finance. These two personal finance gurus have combined their money superpowers and become a stellar couple.
What are we covering?
Erik, Gwen and I chat about:
- How this frugal young couple came together
- The previous relationships and why they didn’t work out
- Their opinion on prenuptial agreements and engagements ring prices
As personal finance bloggers and podcasters, Gwen and Erik share a love for truly helping people reach a better financial standing. Join us today to see how financial independence has inspired them individually and now as a couple.

Money Master of the Week
David from Minneapolis paid off $52,000 of student debt in 13 months!
He and his wife Ally partnered together and CRUSHED this student debt. In a time where the student debt in our country is crippling the financial growth of 44 million Americans, David and Ally said: “We’ll just clean ours up RIGHT NOW”.
Ally worked after school at night, they decreased the food budget and the eating out budget … and they tracked everything.
And now, David and Ally want to help other couples win like they have. Check them out at Wealthy Weds and who knows, you might just have a debt-free and wealthy relationship like they do.
