Money and Marriage – How to Talk About Money With Your Partner

17070-a-woman-and-older-man-sitting-at-a-table-pvMoney is one of the most contentious issues in a marriage, so much so that it is one of the most common reasons for divorce. If you are looking to make your marriage successful, it’s important to put some serious time and effort into learning how to talk about money with your partner.

How to Talk About Money with Your Partner

  • Our background exerts enormous influence over how we spend money. Unfortunately, how we spend money is such a fundamental part of our lives that it can be easy for us to assume that it is universal, which can be a problem when money spending habits come into conflict. To combat this effect, you and your partner need to learn more about each other’s background when it comes to personal finance, which will provide you with the understanding needed to communicate efficiently and effectively about money matters.
  • Arguments about money often start when one partner confronts the other in a moment of anger, which is likely to provoke similar emotions on the other partner’s part. To avoid this, you should set aside some time with your partner on a weekly basis to talk about family finances. This way, you can communicate without anger or frustration getting in the way.
  • Remain calm and constructive to make progress when talking to your partner about money matters. If you find that the discussion is getting heated, consider putting it on hold and then cooling off before getting back into it.
  • With this as with other things in marriage, practice makes perfect. The more that you talk with your partner about money matters, the better that you will be able to communicate in the future. As a result, even if you hit a temporary snag, don’t take that as a sign to give up.
  • Finally, remember that money matters are not something that one partner has to win at the expense of the other. Instead, it is something that you should work through together to find a solution.
