It might be time to have an awkward, but important, conversation with your partner.
The American Psychology Association 2014 survey shows that "stress related to financial issues could have a significant impact on our health and well-being." Almost seven out of 10 feel stressed over money matters.
The reality is that what we do with our money every day, matters, and could have long-term implications for our financial security. Every day, we are making trade-offs with our money. Living with intent and purpose creates meaning in our lives, and this creates joy. We need to connect the idea of living a joyful existence with our money.
