Money is not directly the cause of strife in a relationship, but more so the lack of it as well as over-spending. It is imperative that each partner understands how they themselves view money as well as how their partner views money. When each partner has a different relationship with money, trouble often ensues. Time and time again it’s seen in therapy who does not appreciate their partner’s value of money. Often one person is a saver and the other is a spender. The best way for couples to handle the money issue is first for each person to talk about their view of money and then to create a budget.

Partners should never ever hold financial secrets from one another in order to reduce financial conflicts. Relationships should be based on openness and trust, and this extends to how we share our financial information with our partners. Couples must learn to budget their money and live within their limits. If you can save a little and still have money at the end of each month, you know you are living within or below your means.

Learn how to budget by following these tips on how to bring your spending under control:

Creating a budget is a necessary evil and generally requires three steps.

-They’re the only practical way to get a grip on your spending – and to make sure your money is being used the way you want it to be used.

– Identify how you’re spending money now.

– Evaluate your current spending and set goals that take into account your long-term financial objectives.

– Track your spending to make sure it stays within those guidelines.

Watch out for cash leakage.

If money from your ATM slipped out of your pocket for no apparent reason, it’s time to keep a better record. In general, if you use an ATM more than once every two weeks, you should be careful where your money goes.

Beware of luxuries dressed up as necessities.

-If your income doesn’t cover your costs, then some of your spending is probably for luxuries – even if you’ve been considering them to be filling a real need.

Tithe yourself.

-Aim to spend no more than 90 percent of your income. That way, you’ll have the other 10% left to save for your big-picture items.
