We don't usually fight over money. We do however start fighting if he gets stressed over money and starts working more and pays less attention to me.

This is how it works with us, too.

Getting closer to your move, huh? Hope the details are coming together for you.

We communicate really well about money. We have a budget that we stick to and extra money we always talk about where we want to use it. We will have to re-work our budget when we move this summer and our expenses change but we won't have a problem doing that.

Nope. My DH and I communicate really well about our finances. He does the budget and breaks it down each week, as he gets paid weekly. He uses an Excel spreadsheet, so we know exactly what we do and don't have. It works out great and we're always right on top of things.

Yeah it will probably be about mid-June when we will go. House is on the market so we will just have to keep our fingers crossed.
