While it might not be uncommon for married couples to argue from time to time, certain types of disagreements may be more common than others and might place a significant strain on a relationship. Studies indicate that financial disagreements remain a common source of unrest among married couples.

Financial disagreements 

Studies indicate that financial disagreements can come in various forms and similar issues could create a rift in a relationship. One common cause of financial unrest in a marriage could pertain to differences of opinion over long-term goals. Those who cannot find common ground on life goals may find that issues of this nature could continue to grow over time and may only act to add stress to the situation or lead to frequent arguments. 

Issues with debt remain another common cause of financial disagreements within a marriage and if such concerns stem from one party’s actions, the other might find it difficult to accept the situation. Fights over finances may also be more common in scenarios in which there is significant financial disparity within the relationship. Financial disagreements could also be more likely when couples disagree about spending and saving habits.

Financial unrest may just be one of the many issues that could lead a person in Georgia to wonder if divorce is the best path for everyone involved. Those who face a similar scenario in life and wish to know more about their available options and the next steps to take could benefit from speaking with a family law attorney for advice.
