Action Tip: Opposites often attract. One is probably a spender who believes money is infinite and ever replenishing. One is probably a saver who believes money is finite and a hard won resource and is a well that can run dry.
When you are fighting about money, you are really fighting about your believe systems and values. We read our spouse’s choices about money as a reflection of how they feel about us based on our value system. Are you fighting over past bills, the budget/spending plan or future purchases and goals? Are you fighting over how to proceed after an emergency happens that you weren’t financially prepared for?
Are you fighting like two rams violently banging horns or rather like two martial art masters?
A spending plan won’t magically stop money fights.
