  • My husband and I don’t really have this issue. I deal with all the money and he’s happy for me to just tell him how much money we have each week and if he wants to buy something, whether we can afford it or not. Doesn’t mean it’s not stressful for both of us, particularly when we’ve been living very frugally on occasion but I also think there’s more important things than money. We’ve always lived by this – “As long as we have each other and the girls, nothing else matters. We will get through it”. And it’s certainly proven true for us.

  • It is a matter of working out what your goals are and both working towards them. I have always handled the bank accounts and my husband paying the bills. I think this way we both knew what we were spending on.
