How many of you have relationship issues?

(1/57) > >>

leevs11:
How many of you have relationship issues? How many have arguments about money with your spouse? What about other non money issues?

roomtempmayo:
Maybe not the answer you're looking for, but I've found that financial security and freedom have made my relationships better, especially my marriage.

Absolutely wayyyyyy less friction in my marriage because of financial security. And I think that lack of friction ends up positively impacting other areas of the marriage as well. Very harmonious, over here.

Captain FIRE:
What do you define as an issue? People arenít always going to agree on every topic. Do you mean have discussions? Have differing viewpoints? Have arguments or fights? Something else?

We rarely have money issues. Weíll discuss, but rarely disagree with what the other wants to do. (And if so, usually itís a very mild disagreement along the lines of: ďstop thinking about it, itís only X, just buy it!Ē)

The only recurring issue we really have is division of household labor, which we both feel strongly about.

Very much agree. There's a reason why finances are listed as one of the major stressors in marriage. It's a rare marriage that can handle financial stress or disunity well. I'm very thankful that we are so much on the same page in our marriage and don't have financial worries to stress over.
