A marriage is an institution that needs to be worked on by two partners for a successful and a healthy family relationship. But other than true love for one another, couples also need money may be to make them live in a more comfortable life.
Lets’s say either partners are working or even self employed in their own business, the fact remains that there is some income coming into the family. You will always hear the newlyweds getting congratulatory messages with additional comments that two are better than one.
First, couples should not really concentrate on each other’s their payroll, what matters is setting monthly goals irrespective of who will do what and make a tick on anything achieved. Couples should thus focus their interest and energies towards achieving the set goals because accomplishments mean that as a family you are moving towards the right direction.
Then there is a mentality that a man being the head of the family ought to shoulder all the family expenses. But then it does no harm if the wife being the helper can practically assist and offset some bills like even paying school fees for the children. The couples at this instance know how important it is for them to be there for one another in case one is financially down. There is no need of leaving ne partner to strain financially.
There are some couples who may decide to even have a joint account and thereafter are able to channel cash for any family investments. In this case, such a situation calls for a lot of trust and mutual understanding because couples have to jointly agree when to make withdrawals and for what use.
Anyway couples should always be ready to face challenges that come their way as far as money intake and usage takes course.
