Unequal Pay, Equal Say (Video)

Unequal Pay Equal Say

When you are married, both you and your spouse have an equal say in the family finances! It doesn’t matter if you make 100%, 50%, or 0% of the income.

As far the state is concerned, if you are legally married, you have an equal share of the family’s assets.  But if one partner feels entitled to a greater say in how money is spent, it causes power struggles and fighting between spouses.  This is a sure way to end up in divorce court!

It’s been my observation that couples who make spending, saving, and credit decisions as equal partners have stronger marriages and have a higher likelihood of achieving and maintaining financial health.
