Money Troubles – Part I

While money itself may not be the cause of a divorce, a fair number of women I talk to say that differences in money management or philosophy about money were a factor in their divorce. That was true for “Sue” who was married for three years and has been divorced now for four years. She says since her divorce, she has gone through a process of absolutely transforming her relationship with money.

“I understand now quite a bit more about what went wrong with the marriage. Just the way I am around money is just completely different and it’s a much healthier relationship altogether.”

Listen to Sue retell what was at the root of her money problems:

I’ve known Sue for a few months now and when she told me she would share her money story for my blog, I never expected to hear this. Nor did I expect to hear what it was that finally made her decide to change. Come back on Wednesday and hear part two of this story to find out what resources helped Sue turn her life around. She now has more money coming than going out each month and runs a succesful business. She has every right to be proud of her accomplishment!

    I think anytime there’s a big disparity in either the initial wealth, or the income , of two partners, there is the potential for conflict. A pre-nuptual agreement can go a long way to avoiding these disagreements.
