Relationship Issues and Finances

August 6, 2009

In marriage counseling, communication is an important component.  Harmful communications such as yelling, blaming and degrading are certainly not helpful in resolving any relationship issue, especially relating to finances. Often, partners have different spending habits and ideas about saving.  Money Magazine recommends to “Make peace with your money” by sitting down for 45 minutes a week to discuss financial issues.  If you are unable to do this peacefully and effectively, it is advisable to seek marriage counseling.  Consultation with a psychologist will probably identify other significant relationship issues.
