Take it Easy With Each Other

Each spouse brings with them several factors that influence how they approach finances: family history, personality type, education, etc.
Here are some easy ways to make sure you are taking it easy on your spouse.

1) Remember that budgeting is not a tool to rein in your spouse. It is not a way to control him/her.

2) Remember that you do not have to give up everything. You can create budget categories for each spouse to spend a certain amount on
things they enjoy.

3) Avoid criticizing your spouse. Do not act as though your financial difficulties rest on one person’s shoulders. Avoid lying to each other
about finances and work together for the betterment of your marriage.
