Money can be one of the biggest stresses in relationships. Talking about money is often a taboo subject among many couples. Fighting about money in the first five years of marriage is a stronger predictor of divorce than fights about sex, household chores or the in-laws, according to research by Jeffrey Dew at Brigham Young University.
Often our ways, beliefs and methods with money come from deep-rooted childhood patterns. Therapy can help couples learn how to talk about money enabling them to set their priorities together through compromise in developing a healthy balance. Our therapists are trained and available to help you with this process. We also have available resources to minimize the stress of budgeting, planning and following through on changes.
