For anyone who is in a relationship, there can be some times where tensions rise. Maybe your in-laws are bothering you, you got into a spat over what movie you were going to see. However, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, one of the most common causes of break-ups is financial stress.

“This is partly because of housing affordability – people are servicing huge mortgages, or they’re locked out and paying ever-increasing levels of rent.”

With expenses constantly mounting, especially with kids, your financial health can put a massive strain on a relationship. That’s why couples should be taking more time to focus on it.

“The key is agreeing on shared goals and sticking to them. You might not have the same values about money, but hopefully you have the same values about honesty and following through on commitments. If you don’t, you may have bigger problems.”

To find out other ways to prevent financial stress from becoming a serious problem in your relationship, read more at smh.com.au.
