Every couple splits for different reasons. No relationship is the same, and neither is any separation or divorce. Divorce is frightening for almost couples, no matter the circumstance. So what is the most common reason for divorce? Money.
Half the marriages in this country will end in divorce. Less than 25% of marriages in California will make it. But even in Orange County, known for being one of the nicer counties in the state, money is still a huge issue in marriages. Whether the couple is wealthy or poor, money can be the deciding factor in a marriage. And it often leads to divorce. Money problems can lead to extreme levels of stress and tension. Breakups don’t always occur because of a lack of chemistry or love, but because of money and stress levels.
So what can you do avoid this? If you have money problems, arguments and/or stress are bound to occur. So instead, pay close attention to your finances to help your relationship. Instead of relying on credit, start setting aside money each paycheck. A solid savings account can help prevent a serious fight or divorce-causing issue when a financial issue arises. Your savings may not be enough to get you completely through the unforeseen issues, but it will help immensely.
Save money now to save your marriage later.
