Is Love…… or Money….. more important?

[Valentine]

When you think about it, couples don’t fight over love. They fight over money. They fight because one person didn’t balance the checkbook or made a bone-headed investment without consulting the other. They fight because one partner exerts dictatorial control over the money, or because one has secretly amassed thousands of dollars in debt on a credit card, imperiling the couple’s finances.

Whether the issues are big or small, money will prove a powerful force impacting your marriage — sometimes overtly in the form of routine arguments; sometimes quietly as animosities seethe beneath the surface for years, only to explode into a potentially marriage-ending supernova.

What couples don’t always grasp is that money is rarely the real culprit. It’s the lack of communication, often stemming from a lack of knowledge about each other’s personal financial quirks and beliefs.

So, some time between “Yes, I will marry you,” and “I do,” you and your partner need to have The Money Talk — the key questions all couples should ask of one another.

Here are four of the more important questions to ask each other, since they provide insight and information on how money will flow through your marriage.

And these are the questions…….

And while love is grand….. money has a seat at that table……

And Love is always more in important…..always
