When discussing money in a relationship, it's not rare for arguments or disagreements to occur... We're only human. Being aware of the reasons why, however, can help with the communication process and understanding of one another.
The following 5 reasons that couples argue over money are what we have commonly seen in our office:
1. Values not aligned.
2. One member of the couple may feel that their work or contribution is not being respected/valued.
3. Different levels of financial literacy.
4. Lack of clear communication.
5. Different decision-making processes.
