Article by Patrick Iwobi
If youve said the traditional wedding vows, you know your marriage is supposed to be for richer and for poorer. However, all of us know that sticking together and having a happy marriage is a lot easier when youre at the end the richer end of the spectrum. Part of that stems from the stress of dealing with money shortages. That means a good way to save your marriage is by creating a budget and sticking to it.
Why Budget in Your Marriage?
A budget allows you to see on paper your financial situation. What surprises many couples is the amount of money they are bringing into the household even when they always seem to be struggling to cover the necessities. By looking at what youre earning and spending, you can look for ways to reduce your financial stress and save your marriage.
The first step is determining what is a need and what is a want. Needs are things like electricity, shelter, gas for the car, food for the family, insurance, and similar recurring expenses. If you cant meet these basic expenses, youre more likely to feel stressed because your basic needs are possibly not being met. Once you make sure you have all of these expenses covered every month, youll feel more secure and relaxed.
Getting Started on a Marriage Budget
