5 Money Mistakes That Couple Make
Posted March 17th, 2014 @ 7:35am



We've all heard that money issues can lead to divorce. It's not easy living with someone who doesn't share the same views as you when it comes to the family budget.

According to Wall Street Cheat Sheet, here are 5 MONEY MISTAKES COUPLES MAKE:


1. Not talking about your financial history. When you start getting serious, you need to discuss your debt, your spending habits and your expected bills.

2. Sharing a bank account too soon. It's best not to do this one of you're not married...or if one of you comes into the relationship with a lot more money than the other person.

3. Not setting and sticking to a budget.

4. Giving one person all the financial power. This could lead to distrust and arguments.

5. Not teaching your kids how to save money.
