Hmmm... not sure what the best way to phrase this is.

I'm in my 20's and have been working hard since college to erase all my debt (credit cards, loans, etc.). I've been pretty successful at this, but still have a little way to go (who doesn't).

Here's my question: My girlfriend is not exactly financially responsible. I just taught her how to balance a checkbook, but she just keeps piling up the bills. She'll ignore bills that come in the mail and gets calls from creditors all the time demanding money. I just know that one look at her credit report would make me cringe (she doesn't care to see hers).

Is anyone else in a relationship with a financially inept person, and how do you make them see the light?
