Why does money lead to divorce?

Money is often cited as one of the main reasons for divorce, but have you ever wondered why it is so divisive in modern relationships? While every relationship is unique, there are a few common trends you can find when you look at divorces that revolve around money.

One potential problem is that people have different spending habits, which they may never have talked about before marriage. If one person saves their money for the future and the other spends it quickly, it can lead to a lot of heated arguments. In practicality, both people may feel like the other person's opinion is wrong, leading them to want a new relationship that gives them the control to do whatever they desire.

Another possible problem is when money is tied to control. It can lead to a power struggle between the two individuals. If one person controls the finances and does not let the other make any decisions, it can turn into financial abuse that ends the marriage.

Money can also lead to stress, particularly when couples do not have enough of it to pay the bills. That stress can eat away at a romantic relationship over time. This is especially true in situations where the people do not agree on how they should use what little money they do have or in relationships where one spouse works and the other does not.

These are just a few ways that money can end a marriage, but they help to show why it happens and why it's so important to consider your legal rights if you do split up.
