Tightwads and Spenders: Predicting Financial Conflict in Couple Relationships
finance, couples, relationships, financial conflict
The ability for a couple to successfully manage conflict while navigating their financial situation is important to the ultimate success of their relationship. Financial problems are consistently reported as a top stressor for Americans (APA 2015), and disagreement over money matters is a frequently cited source of conflict for couples (Dew 2007) and a contributor to relationship dissatisfaction and divorce (Britt and Huston 2012).
