Marriage and Money

June 29th, 2010 at 08:13 pm

When two people become married the money becomes both of theirs. There is no more "His Money" or " Her Money" Its "Our Money". There is no hiding money from your spouse or spending money without first discussing it together. I have known couples who each have their own separate checking accounts. That seems really weird to me.

My wife and I do not spend even $1 without letting the other person know what we are doing. Not taking the time to do a budget together and discussing the finances is a good way to bankrupt your bank account and marriage.

The number 1 cause of divorce today is money fights and money problems. Don't become a statistic. Do something about it today and start working with your spouse on the finances. It will pay off in the long run.

    I agree with you completely. My husband and I discuss every penny spent, seriously. We've been married almost 18 years and it eliminates conflict and drama. It's all about communicating for knowledge and to keep the peace.
