A friend once asked me, has money ever put a strain on my marriage? Vehemently i said no, money has never put any strain on my marriage, by saying that i did not discount the fact it has never been a problem but it just that it has never rocked my marriage.
Money has always been delicate and threatening issue as far as marriage is concerned, i remembered one lady friend used to lament this to me," I ask him (the husband), you got money to pay house installment or not? he said no worry no worry but then again few weeks down the road, the bank kept calling me and he never understands the stress i am going through"
It always puzzles me, how married couples cannot be open enough to talk about money, is it the man's ego that deters him to open up to his wife that he is no good in handling money and he needs help or may be the woman's inability to get the man talking?
Wouldn't it be sad when we hear someone says this, " I can't trust my wife or my husband with money" what's left in a marriage when this occurs, just wonder?
I have heard these comments far so many times," No money already, some more can go out and drink with his friends" " his family got problem, no need to ask my opinion, just help, when my family got problem, he says how many times we helped them already"
I felt sad when i heard from my Christian friend how money has begun to crack up on her marriage and her husband was not willing to talk about it..........
P/S : We are not Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, therefore nothing is at stake if we talk about it..
