Do you ever have arguments regarding money in your marriage? I have actually learned that married couples fight over the money the most out of all other types of arguments.

before we do argue about money when we are on our first three years of being married. but now not anymore since we have realized that fighting because of money is not healthy anymore. my husband told me that we should not worry about money and let money worry for us :-) and truly it is a waste of time since money wont really keep us happy.

i think money issue is integral part of marriage life...i also experienced that when we were starting our family, since im so used to handling my own money...there came a point that i got so irritated when my husband asks me where did i put my earnings...so i got so fed up with the issue, since almost every payday he asked me that question...i told him to share our earnings...now its him who have our money (banker) and im the one doing the budgeting...

yes married couple fight over the money the most, especially if you have a spender and a saver together, or you have no money and things are really hard, that is the biggest stress on any marriage. I am not married now but my adult son lives with me and we fight about money a lot, we don't buy things unless it is a family discussion. I am the one that has to tell him not to spend money when we are low,

This works for us there is nothing that can cause sparks more then a good money discussion. There is never a clear winner, just compromise.

Yeah we fight because of money, especially when we are facing a finaincail problems and bills are coming day by day. Money can be a big problem in a family, since today you don't do nothing without money.
