Consolidated Credit Helps Couples Learn How to Talk about Money

Two out of three couples start their marriage in debt, according to a report by the Federal Reserve.  Disagreements on how to handle debt and different spending priorities can lead to arguments and incompatibility—and possibly divorce! In fact, money fights are the second leading cause of divorce after infidelity. Couples need to talk about money before and throughout their marriage if they want to avoid conflict and achieve financial goals for their household.

That’s why Consolidated Credit put together a free webinar “Marriage and Money: Till Debt Do Us Part. Couples will learn:

  • how to have the right conversations about money
  • how to deal with different money personalities
  • techniques for managing money as a couple
  • how to maintain open communications

Couples need to talk about money to get on the same page

One big mistake that couples make with money is not having the right conversations before they get married. Before you talk about a wedding, there are three key money talks that you should have. This webinar will tell you what they are. Not having these talks can create stress in your relationship.
