I’m kicking off this series talking about money for two reasons. First, money is one of the main subjects that causes couples to argue, and plays a significant role in the majority of divorces. The second reason is that even though most of us understand the importance of money in marriage, we often avoid in-depth conversations on the subject before walking down the aisle.
I first learned about Glennon Doyle Melton’s book Love Warrior when I stumbled upon Ellen McCarthy‘s Washington Post article “Her marriage was the jewel in her blog universe. Then she found out her husband was cheating.”
As we look to 2017, now is the time to pick at least one goal to work on as a couple. Make it specific, decide on what each of you will do to contribute to the goal, and how you will celebrate your achievement.
Happy New Year!
It’s not always the most wonderful time of the year.
Be patient with each other and try to keep your emotions (and your drinking) in check.
