We each have a unique relationship with money.
Though not everyone recognizes the connection, there is a direct line between how you feel about money and your financial tendencies.
Not only does your relationship with money influence financial decisions but it also plays a role in your self-worth. Thus, making it a topic worth exploring. Especially since money affects most areas of your life.
Many couples consider premarital counseling as something for those who really don’t know what they want out of a marriage.
Yet, that is far from the truth. In reality, premarital counseling should be a prerequisite for any couple looking to get married.
How can it benefit and strengthen your relationship?
The simple answer to this question is ‘No’. In most cases money can’t buy true happiness. It seldom if ever makes a bad relationship good, nor can it improve intimacy in a relationship. People with the highest incomes often have to work long hours, and many of them quit these jobs and find work that brings them greater life satisfaction.
Once we adapt to higher incomes, it can soon lose its appeal. After a promotion and higher salary, a person often feels greater life satisfaction and happiness but in less than about three months, the higher salary can lose its impact on happiness levels.
