  • not really.... we discuss whats being spent. the last time we kind of argued is because I messed up on our budget for the month. but that was my fault and i admitted it. we dont have an issue with money. we budget correctly.

  • I highly recommend Dave Ramsey. It will help you and hubby be on the same page and it will allow you to work on the money problems that are causing the arguments. My hubby and i still bicker abtu money sometimes but it helps alot to have a plan and to both agree to where the money is going.

  • I can honestly say Husband and I don't argue about money. The reason We used to is because We didn't have a lot when He was in the Army. With this job, We are pretty well-off..We are so Blessed.

  • We pay the usual bills and talk over any other plans. Pretty much if something is important to me he's heard about it a bit before I make a purchase. He doesn't go out and spend money and neither do I unless it's discussed ahead of time. It's not asking for permission I see it as discussing priorities to manage a budget. We haven't had a money disagreement since we started sharing it all. It's been great for us.
