    Financial Compatability

     "TDS: Studies show that money is a common reason for divorce and breakups. How can you tell if you're financially compatible with someone you're dating?" says an article in this week's Dollar Strether.  

    Is it important to determine before marriage that you can agree on large financial matters? If most fights are over money and money causes divorce then yes. How can you decide before you are sharing money and expenses if you will get along and agree?

     My husband and I are not money compatible at all. Yet we have been married for almost 30 years now.

    We were councelled before we were married but frankly he would have agreed to anything back then.  We learned to manage our money by trial and error. I believe it's more about your commitment to each other and willingness to bend that keeps a marriage together in all aspects.
