You Have Problems With Your Husband About Money?
Money is perhaps the most common cause of misunderstandings, quarrels and exchange of harsh words between spouses. To avoid the shouting, looks full of anger and unbearable silence after the storm, consider the following tips:
1. Create a home budget
It sounds complicated, but is not. Take care of your income and expenses. Money does not evaporate as you think. The management of money will let you know where “flew away” your every penny. Even if just one of you earn, it is important to plan the budget together.
2. Make weekly meetings to discuss your finances
Do not wait three months to pass to get shocked by the financial situation in which you are. Do not let because of your indifference to find out that your bank account is empty, too comfortable life can stick you in an even bigger financial mess. Each week sit down with your husband and check your standing with money.
3. Do not blame each other
The worst thing you can do is mutually blaming for the financial problems. Shifting the blame to your partner will not help you to solve the problem. Instead of blaming, start looking for a solution and ways to cut the costs.
4. Speak in plural
Skip the sentences “My salary …”, “I bought …”. When you are married, you are on the same side. And you and your husband want financial stability, so do not attempt with sentences like this to create opposing teams. Both revenues and expenditures should be shared, so use the plural instead of the singular speak.
5. Never talk about money in front of your children
Choose the time and place of conducting conversations about money. For example, while your children sleep, while they are at school, or while they are out with friends. You need to be in a relaxed atmosphere while you are talking about money, not to be forced to abstain and to suppress certain things because of the children. Suppression the problems will not lead to their solution.
