Do you think that when couple are having problems with money they always split up? The reason I am asking is that I have a very greedy husband and I really feel that we have money issues, I feel bad about it and thinking of going away from him. I don't know how to make him understand that the reason I am leaving is because of him being so greedy?

I know first hand that couples can work threw their money problems. About 13 yrs ago, my husband and I went threw something like this. He would get angry with me if I took my children to Burger King for lunch saying I was waisting money. Finally, I told him that if things didn't change, it was over. I told him that I couldn't live my life saving every cent that we make. I also said that I would not deprive my children of a treat once in a while. After many fights/discussions regarding this, he has totally changed. WE are so much happier now that we have fun with the money we make. Try talking to your husband and explaining your needs and feelings...good luck.

I am sorry but I do not understand by what you mean by greedy, To me a greedy person is one who never spends money only is trying to get more to keep.But also will not spend any money even on necessity's of life, I will give you an example, a child is playing in a sand box with other children, and has taken all the toys in the sand box and will not share them no matter what, that is a greedy action. But most adults have gotten over that mentality , and know that they must at least pay their own bills and way. sorry can't help you here

By greedy I mean person who doesn't want to share any of his things or even emotions with others. I think that people who don't like to give presents and who hate inviting people to their homes are greedy.

Thank you so much for your response. I also believe in love, but you know, love fades away when you feel that the other person don't value you a lot and don't want to make you happy.

you know they say money isnt everything, money cant buy happiness and all that crap but the thing is the world revolves around money, it keeps food in our belly, clothes on our backs and a roof over our head, so money is very important and i think thats why we fight over it. the only time my husband and i fight is if it has something to do with money. I would like to think that our love is stronger then money.

Thank you for your response. I think money is important, but more important is the mutual understanding and respect in the family. If you don't want to give presents to your husband or say that he daoesn't need another pair of shoes, I think this kind of family has troubles, and that's what going on in mine.
