The way you handle your money as a couple is important to the strength of your marriage, as well as your entire family’s future. However, sharing money is one of the hardest things a couple faces, and it continues to be cited as the one of the top reasons behind divorces. It’s hard..but it’s not impossible!
I’m sharing my best advice for getting a reluctant spouse on board with budgeting. I’ll walk you through what helped my husband + I get on the same page with our money, and I’ll also share some words of encouragement for the budgeting nerd spouse AND the free-spirited spouse.
