They say what brings separation between couples is MONEY…the love of or the lack of. What about what’s yours and what’s theirs, what happens when you have a joint interest, like income tax. Do you file together or keep it separate? What if you can’t agree on how to split the refund or even when to file…these MONEY MATTERS can bring about conflict and disappointment.
Communication is key, being able to discuss financial issues openly to help resolve whatever financial disagreements couples may have. Come to terms on what needs and goals are important. Come to terms on what is fair and understand that each person is just as important a contributor to the daily operations of the relationship. After the needs are met, have fun and splurge a little. Enjoy life, and know that it’s more than money that matters!!!
