One of the most complex things in relationships are how to deal with finances. As many of us have heard, 50% of marriages end in divorce and one of the main reasons for that is financial issues. Many couples have issues figuring out how to deal with finances and who should have the responsibility of taking care of them. This blog discusses how to handle finances in the family and it also gives five reasons why sharing financial responsibilities are important.
When I first got married I thought, due to being a financial person, that I needed to be in charge of our family finances. After a couple of years my wife became frustrated with me because she wanted to be included in our finances. When I finally gave in, it really helped strengthen our relationship because we communicated better. As we all know communication is one of the most important things in a relationship, this should also include finances. Communicating about finances will help make sure you and your spouse have the same financial goals and your budget stays on track. Check out the video blog and I hope it helps give you some insight on how to deal with finances in a relationship.
