Emotion & Money
Money can bring much pleasure, or much pain. Money can signify power, freedom, independence, and happiness. Knowing this, our habits and behavior around money have a significant impact on our relationships and most are unaware. We can do things that emotionally betray our partner financially and can be as devastating as an affair. I see the looks on peoples’ faces when they tell me about their partner’s credit card debt or the motorcycle they bought without discussing it first. It is a look of hurt and betrayal that can be difficult to mend. This can go on for years and silently chips away at the relationship.
