Money is often cited as the biggest source of stress in marriage, but it's not the money itself that causes tension. Financial issues in marriage are usually caused by bad attitudes, unrealistic expectations, and wrong assumptions about money management. Everything has a money angle, and couples often disagree on how to spend, save, borrow, earn and give money. These disagreements can stem from childhood experiences, long-standing expectations, or misunderstandings about finances. Sinful attitudes like greed, selfishness, anger, and resentment can also affect how couples relate to each other about money. To help couples come together on money, it is important to remember why God brought them together, communicate openly, make a budget together, and keep finances together. Finally, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 reminds us to be patient and loving with each other.
