  • Would I allow it? I think it happens whether we want it to or not. Money problem DO cause a tremendous strain and there sometimes isn't anything you can do about it other than talk with your spouse and let them know that you DON'T want it to ruin your relationship. Good Luck.

  • Money problems is the leading cause of divorce, even over cheating. I wouldn't let it, I would try my best. Ever month couples should sit down and talk about there finances, or have a middle man (someone good with math or an accountant) with them to talk about it just to make sure things get back on track. Everything should have a bugdet and both should try there best to follow it and live within your means. Also look at where you live, is cost of living high in your area? I would suggest maybe moving to another area (not a bad area) that's not so high, or if it is high, is there better job oppurtunities...stuff like that. Good luck!
