MONEY AND RELATIONSHIPS
One of the most important, yet often overlooked factors for building a strong relationship is money.
Money is such an emotionally loaded topic that few couples ever discuss it directly and almost never bring it up before committing to a relationship.
For most people, money is never just money. It represents love, power, happiness, security, control, dependency, independence, freedom and more.
Itâ€™s no wonder with so much emotional baggage attached to money, itâ€™s one of the major reasons for relationships breaking down.
It starts with two people each having a troubled relationship with money.
They may not have seen the underlying issues when they were going solo, but once the relationship deepens, the issues surface, get magnified, then explode.
The path towards growth is that couples need to “unload” their emotions and feelings about money and start to see money for what it really is – a tool to accomplish some of life’s goals.
The process wonâ€™t happen overnight, but when we begin having open, honest conversations with each other about money, the healing can begin and the relationship will flourish.
If you plan to talk about money, always air your feelings first. Otherwise, negotiations will always break down. If you canâ€™t deal with the pressure of speaking face to face, start small.
