Marriage and money are scarcely a civil union. Couples fight about money more than any other issue. This is as true of couples who stay married

as of couples who wind up divorcing. The main financial matters they fight over:

Debts (credit card and others)

Levels of spending and saving (Women tend to think men should make more, while men tend to think that women should spend less.)

Time spent working

Differences in long-term financial goals

(such as retirement savings)

Money chores (such as balancing the checkbook and paying bills)

Current Issue

Let It Go!

It can take a radical reboot to get past old hurts and injustices.
