Don't Let Money Fights Ruin Your Marriage
Have you two have fought about money?
Okay, let me put it another way – when was the last time you two clashed? Money can be a hot topic in relationships, even if you two have similar dreams and goals.
We're coming at finances, kids, life with different perspectives and histories. Each marriage has its own challenges and sometimes the disagreements we have can be overwhelming.
The good news is that you can work through your fights and in fact use them as a way to make your finances and marriage stronger.
Jayson Gaddis, relationship psychotherapist and creator of The Smart Couple Podcast, is here to offer up ideas and tactics you two can use in your marriage.
In this episode we get into:
- why you shouldn't avoid fights
- how to start opening up with finances and more
- how your friends can push you to be better and more engaged in your marriage
Hope you enjoy!
