The Jolie-Pitt clan may no longer be walking the concrete streets of Los Angeles, but rather the cobblestone roads of London. As reported by UsMagazine.com, the married celebrity couple of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently toured a $39 million Westminster mansion. Although this latest celebrity news hints at the family relocating, the duo are reportedly hesitant about making such a huge investment. Specifically, Jolie doesn’t want to rush into anything that could potentially halt her directing aspirations. The famous couple have been spending an increased amount of time in London because Jolie wants to “slowly immerse herself in E.U. politics.”
This famous couple is selecting a new home together. What are some ways to compromise on a big purchase?
If you and your loved one are thinking about spending big, then it is essential you both agree on this decision. Make sure you both put the bigger picture of each other’s happiness above this material good. Cupid has some key factors to remember when you’re splurging big:
1. Plan a way to fit it into your budget: Arguing about money is one of the quickest ways to strain a relationship, so make sure you’re realistic about what purchases you want to make. Set financial goals so you can both reach that dream boat you’ve always wanted. The key is figuring out ahead of time where you and your partner can cut back.
2. Decide if the purchase is necessary: Buying a new house for a growing family is certainly justifiable, but if you and your partner are dropping cash on outlandish items then that can lead to an array of problems. Only make big purchases that make sense with the life you are living. Spending money is addicting so make sure you and your loved one don’t end up in over your heads.
3. Communicate: Most problems in life can be solved with a simple conversation and this situation is no different. Assure yourself and your lover that you both are 100% on board with this purchase. If your partner is hesitant then ask them can be done differently to make it right.
