Strengthening marriage through finances

Posted by in Blog, Marriage | Comments Off on Strengthening marriage through finances

Money has its own way of creating pressure in any relationship. Although financial disagreements are typical among couples, leaving them unresolved might result in resentment and grudges that may ultimately affect the quality of the marriage. As such, it is very important to develop healthy money habits that couples should share in order to lessen the chances of getting into financial confrontations.

One sure way to do this is to start having a mutual bank account. Having a shared fund eases the tension of figuring out who is spending more than the other, and gives each other the idea that financial management is a team effort, rather than an individual act. Also, because each shares the same funds, they have to align their spending habits and discuss how to use their collective resources responsibly.
