Financial Issues Affect Relationships

Now is the time to unify in your marriage and spend money wisely.

46% of those surveyed at Wallet Hub said they’d leave a relationship if their partner spent money foolishly. Half wouldn’t marry someone with bad credit, and a majority said financial infidelity might be worse than actual cheating.

Financial issues can signal a lack of self-discipline, addictions or unmet emotional needs. If you’re under a great deal of financial stress right now, take the time to sit down with your spouse. Be open and honest, and pray together for financial wisdom. You can get through this…together.

Solomon said, “Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing…it preserves those who have it.” (Ecclesiastes 7:11)
