Think infidelity is a major cause of relationship problems? It can be.....but there's something else lurking behind that marital bush that causes just as many problems. Finances you say? Ding...Ding....Ding......Your are correct! Financial problems can kill even the most strongest relationships. When a couple is struggling financially it can create a grab bag full of arguments and nothing stresses a relationship more than not having enough money. Whoever said...."we can live off love", obviously had money! Because that's the only way you could enjoy living off love! The bible says money answers all things....and that's true......it does. It is so easy to solve the majority of problems if there were no money problems. Money can't buy happiness though, no matter how hard you try. That is why so many wealthy people are absolutely miserable. They have all the money in the world and yet there are still unhappy. Then you take those few who have found happiness but yet they don't have much. Go figure. So the question becomes.....is it better to be rich and miserable or poorer and happy? As for me, I'd choose happy and pray my marriage is one of the few.
