TIPS TO PREVENT YOUR MARRIAGE FROM BEING DESTROYED BY FINANCIAL STRESS

by Sandy Plone, Ph.D.

 

By Katlyn, published September 11, 2008

Couples often marry before discussing the very important subject of finances, which is often at the very forefront of marital problems. When each partner has different views on finances, this can lead to a breakdown of communications, arguments, even separation.

Here are some tips to help prevent your marriage from being destroyed by financial stress:

  1. BE OPEN WITH EACH OTHER
  2. DISCUSS BANK AND CREDIT CARD ACCOUNTS
  3. DECIDE WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT
  4. ANALYZE EARNINGS AND BUDGETING
  5. DO NOT UNDERMINE YOUR PARTNER

Writer’s personal note: we at IPN cannot ignore the very stressful state of our economy, and understand that these tips, while good advice, do not begin to address the detrimental psychological impact the current situation is having on individuals and families.
