Money can have a significant impact on your finances and vice versa. Fights over money are now a leading cause of the 50% divorce rate in our country and a prime reason why many relationships end. What’s more, challenges like financial abuse and financial infidelity are becoming hot button issues in today’s culture as people become more inclined to give voice to taboo topics such as debt, lack of savings and bad credit.
