Money and Arguments

Money is often a point of contention in relationships, because it represents such power. One partner might be in charge of the money, and dole it out to the other. This causes all sorts of argument-rich situations.

The best way to handle money is to do it in a team fashion. Both partners should be completely honest about how they spend money, and should jointly pay bills and calculate expenses. That way both know where the money goes, how it is spent, and agrees on it.
