Tina Tessina offers expert insights into financial bickering — namely, how to make it stop!
Do you and your husband argue about money? Is it starting to take a toll on your relationship? If so, help is on the way.
In this video, psychologist, therapist and YourTango ExpertTina Tessina assures us that it's common for couples to fight about money. Money is usually a heated topic because of our symbolic and emotional ties to it.
"Sit down with your husband in a more business-like manner ... put papers in front of you; make it feel more like business and it'll go more like business. And, if you have to talk about the emotional parts of money — I feel guilty about spending money on this, or I feel scared that we don't have enough money — talk about that separately from making the money decisions. The money decisions are just math."
