May 21, 2019 by Ushir Shah

My girlfriend and I live together in New York and share many expenses month after month. Whether it’s to split rent or keep track of who paid for what and when, we use Namu to collaborate and manage every aspect of our shared financial lives. We’re able to budget and strategize without having to merge every aspect of our finances, enabling us to strengthen our relationship while maintaining financial independence. Learn more about why I created Namu.

 

Modern love takes many forms, and people everywhere are abandoning traditional definitions of what it means to be a couple. More and more couples are choosing to live together before marriage, and plenty of couples decide marriage isn’t for them at all. Just because a couple isn’t married doesn’t mean they don’t share significant aspects of their lives together.

My girlfriend and I live together in New York and share many expenses month after month. Whether it’s to split rent or keep track of who paid for what and when, we use Namu to collaborate and manage every aspect of our shared financial lives. What’s great about Namu is that we can share the accounts we need to share – such as our joint credit card – while keeping the rest of our finances separate.

Namu works for us because it gives us exactly as much visibility we need into each other’s finances to manage our household effectively. We also never have to bother each other about financial matters because it’s all there in the app – payments, receipts, and even a shared calendar to schedule due dates and more. We’re able to budget and strategize without having to merge every aspect of our finances, enabling us to strengthen our relationship while maintaining financial independence.

Namu is a great way to collaborate and manage finances with anyone – your friends, family, roommates, partner, colleagues, and more. It’s a simple, smart, and secure way to stay organized and on top of your money. No matter who is in your pods, Namu provides the tools you need to reach your financial goals together.
