CLEARWATER, Fla., July 2 Cheating with money occurs in 1 out of 3 marriages. Some couples say it is even more devastating than sexual infidelity. In addition to the loss of trust, one spouse has spent what the couple had worked together to save for the future. Financial infidelity is the worst conflict between a saver and a spender. In 3 out of 4 marriages couples fight about money. Conflict between a saver and a spender can doom a marriage. What can you do to protect your marriage?
Psychiatrist and author of the book Attract Love, Sex, and Money, Dr. Doug Welpton says that usually one spouse is a saver and the other is a spender. Spouses need to learn to appreciate each other's differences and work together as a team.
In an economy where people became accustomed to buying anything and everything they wanted on a whim, having to make sudden, draconian financial cuts in their household budgets is proving to be very challenging. Old habits can be quite difficult to change.
