These revelations come from researcher Sonya Britt, the school’s assistant professor of family studies and human services, who conducted a study on 4,500 couples as part of the National Survey of Families and Households.As Britt discovered, arguments over money tend to be more intense than other types, thus harder for couples to move on from.
“In the study, we controlled for income, debt, and net worth,” Britt noted in a press release.
According to one study, couples that argued early in their relationships (regardless of income, debt, etc.) were more likely to divorce.
Could it be that getting on the same page about money is the key to marital bliss?
I remember bringing one girl home to “hang out” at the age of 13.
When my parents found out she was raised by a single father, I could sense my parent’s lack of enthusiasm.
