Most Couples Fight Over This One Thing More Than Any Other

Money may make the world go round, but apparently it also makes our relationships go south. Shocker.

A survey of 5,000 people by U.K. couples counselling centers Relate, Relationships Scotland and Marriage Care found that money is the No. 1 relationship stressor.

Of those surveyed, 26 percent reported that money woes put the most pressure on their relationships, followed by a lack of understanding between partners, unmatched libidos and conflicting work-life balances.

The survey also found that the longer couples were together, the more likely they were to argue. Go figure. 

If financial fights are getting in the way of your happy union, Marriage Care counsellor Jenny Porter has some good news: this kind of conflict doesn’t have to be a death sentence.

“Usually, when couples argue over money, it is because both individuals have very different spending habits," said Porter in a press release.

“For example, one person may be more risk-averse and want to put more money away for retirement, while the other person may be more focused on spending for today. Although many couples find it awkward to talk about finances, it is essential to talk things through together to ensure both partners are on the same wavelength and to prevent problems from escalating.”
