It’s no surprise that money is the number one issue that causes problems in marriage. It is one of the most charged issues and almost everyone has strong beliefs that drive their decisions around money.
When you came together as a couple, you likely both had money issues that you didn’t even realize existed. And because talking about money is not considered polite conversation, you may not have ever discussed your thoughts and ideas about earning, spending, saving, investing, and giving away money.
It’s healthy and good to talk through your money beliefs and discover what you want to create in your life together. Once you start communicating what you truly desire, the topic of money won’t be so highly charged.
