We’ve been lucky enough to never really fight about month. Both the wife and I are happy to be frugal, we don’t buy much of anything lately. I handle the budgeting and paying of bills, but I always communicate with her and give updates when we make a big dept payment or hit a net worth milestone.

I’m on my second marriage… does that make me an expert? No, but it does provide a unique perspective. I have found whether it’s money or kids it all comes down to have a completely open path of communication. With my current wife there are literally no secrets, she knows everything and vice versa. I have found this not only great for the relationship but also great for our finances and liberating emotionally.

I’m blessed to have an understanding wife and we never have big fight about financial matters. Sure, there are the occasional misunderstandings about money. But there has been nothing major that has not been patched up immediately. We have defined our roles and capabilities financially clearly since the onset of our marriage.

It is extremely important that both husband and wife are open to each other regarding finances. Regarding spending, it is our practice to consult the other whenever a purchase would exceed a certain pre-determined amount.

The fight about money starts when couple start to love money instead of loving their selves. For me to avoid fighting money, the couple should always preserve their true to each other.

Enjoy saving together. Explore new ways to create new sources of income together and allocate your assets together.

I think if there is mutual trust a couple should not have such problems. Anyway, the hardest thing that you have listed above is “Stick to a budget”.

Sharing bank accounts involves trust and without that foundation it can be difficult to not fight about money. Separate bank accounts, credit cards and the like can create friction without the foundation of trust. You could even compare it to being an addicted gambler and not telling your spouse.

There are several way out…out of which one I need to mention over here. Paying bills together is very important for spouses.Traditionally one spouse handles all the money and investing; it’s very rare for couples to physically sit down with all their bills and statements and write the checks together,” says CFP and radio host Louis Scatigna, author of The Financial Physician. But, he stresses, “you and your honey should manage the money.” These joint sessions – ideally held once a month, he says – prevent the less savvy partner from becoming financially oblivious.
