Money is the number one cause of relationship problems and so you are not alone! You can decrease your arguments about money by applying a simple 4 step process:

  1. Increase your awareness of what is causing the disagreements with money – asking yourself, when do the disagreements occur? At certain times of the month when bills are due? Or is it when big purchases are being made? Perhaps when one person spends a lot more than the other person thinks is reasonable? Get familiar with what are the trends in the communication breakdowns.
  2. Listen to understand each other’s concerns, conflicts and more. Take time to really pay attention to the other person – what would it feel like to be in their shoes? Take time to feel compassion for the other person – their situation in life is different than yours and understanding them at a deeper level will always help you to be a better partner with them in all of life.
  3. Learn what it means to accept and allow so that you move through your pain and allow your partner to move through his/her pain. Accept that the other person has different wishes, dreams and fears – be patient and compassionate to each other and accept that it takes time to change but it can happen when there is a foundation of love and mutual support.
  4. Working on the process of better communication will ultimately allow you to let things go that aren’t worth fighting about and then also bring more attention to those things that require more discussion… and where you are going to want to apply practical steps for finding agreement whenever possible. Improving your relationships is a life long journey where you will always be learning and growing – when you see it that way your challenges no longer consume you and you will feel more free to focus on the most important aspects of why you are together in the first place!
