There is no doubt that a happy marriage is what we all strive for. Yet, in spite of all of our efforts to create harmony with our partner, we have to face one topic that is a major factor in our relationship: Money.

It doesn’t matter if we have more than enough of it, or very little, we must face the fact that we have to have unified money behaviors in order to make for a good marriage.

According to a recent article by Catherine Rampbell, a new study, by Jeffrey Dew at Utah State University, attempts to quantify that risk. His finding: Couples who reported disagreeing about finance once a week were over 30 percent more likely to get divorced than couples who reported disagreeing about finances a few times a month.

Jeffrey Dew. Data analysis based on the National Survey of Families and Households.
Professor Dew looked at responses from about 2,800 couples surveyed in 1987 by the National Survey of Families and Households. In this survey, both husbands and wives were asked, separately, about how often they disagreed with their spouse over chores, in-laws, spending time together, sex and money. These same respondents were then contacted again several years later, in 1992, and asked if they were still married.
Of all these common things couples fight about, money disputes were the best harbingers of divorce. For wives, disagreements over finances and sex were good predictors of divorce, but finance disputes were much stronger predictors. For husbands, financial disagreements were the only type of common disagreement that predicted whether they would get a divorce.
But with Marital Financial Coaching Program, we can bring to surface all of the feared predictors and resolve them BEFORE they dissolve your relationship.
