Open Discussion: What’s your relationship dynamic?

Filed in Gather Money Essential by on July 31, 2009 0 Comments

This morning in the 10 o’clock hour of Midmorning, Kerri talks couples and money with finance expert Ruth Hayden. Listen at 10 a.m. CDT and add your comments here.

The slug from the Midmorning page:

Couples and money
The recession heightens the money disagreements couples have all too frequently. One wrinkle: More couples are deciding not to divorce because it’s too expensive.

…I’m sorry, but is it bad that unhappy couples are staying together? Does it give them a higher chance of being happy in the long term?

Or, maybe I should get to the point of this discussion. What’s the biggest argument-causer in your relationship? It is money? Sex? Kids? Why?
