Sharing a life with someone and trying to run a household is one hell of a challenge, and is sometimes the ‘make-it-or-break-it’ factor that determines if you’re gonna stick it out, or call it quits. In fact, with throwing in the towel while co-habitating, you can actually narrow it down to 3 things that kill the relationship; lack of sex/intimacy, not aligning on politics/religion and most importantly, money. The last one’s a doozy though. If you can’t agree on how to handle your money, you’re in for a bad time.
In fact, according to a survey conducted by areavibes, it’s more than just the money; it’s about the honesty around the money. Some couples tell lies, some hoard money, while others have no idea how to handle their finances, and bring their partners down with them.
It’s pretty scary out there.
