Financial Disaster root cause of Common Marriage Problems
Independent studies by consumer credit and marriage counseling services show that financial issues are one of the most
common marriage problems and are near the top of the list for causing marriage
Financial problems in marriage, if not handled correctly,
can increase stress levels, fuel arguments, cause partners to start blaming each other and often lead to separation and divorce.
Long term financial problems can just eat away at your
lives, make you dread every day as it comes and force you into making life changing, sometimes totally irrational decisions in a deperate
attempt to get your finances back on track.
The first thing you need to come to terms with is that the situation is not going to resolve itself. It’s
no good trying to push it to the back of your mind and carry on as normal. You need to accept that there is a problem, a habitual habit that needs to be sorted and set aside time to consider, discuss and put an action plan in
Don’t start blaming each other you aren't alone and like most common marriage problems financial
issues can be resolved. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how you got into the mess it just matters how you are going to get out. There
is no point in dwelling on the past, it’s gone and there is nothing you can do to change it but whatever action you take now will have a
direct impact on your future and the future of your marriage.
