Did you know it’s divorce season? In the Business Insider article, “January Is ‘Divorce Month,'” Emmie Martin writes about how to deal with divorce. Here’s an excerpt of commentary I provide in the article:
If one spouse hiding money, making large purchases without discussing it with their partner, or buying things that don’t benefit the marriage, such as a boat or a new car, it leads to distrust and tension. Overspending and taking on debt can also put stress on a marriage.
It comes down to the breaking of trust. If you’re carrying a lot of debt, it creates a lot of anxiety. Money is a very emotional issue.
