What is Financial Intimacy?
Marriage is supposed to be the unity of two individuals. A successful marriage is supposed to contain equality, transparency, loyalty, and honesty. Unfortunately, many couples side-step their finances, allowing one spouse to manage them alone, without any input from his or her spouse. Financial complications are one of the leading causes for divorce. If you practice financial intimacy, your marriage is more likely to succeed.
If you are considering filing for divorce, it is important that you have a compassionate and committed attorney on your side. Contact the Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates to discuss your legal rights and options. Call 972-420-6560 today to schedule a free initial consultation.
If you and your spouse do not discuss financial matters openly, it is time to change. Here are a few tips to help make the transition:
- Tell your spouse that you would like to share financial information
- Ask questions about income, expenses, and net worth
- Do not propose this newfound transparency in an accusatory manner
When spouses are left in the dark about financial matters, the seeds of doubt and suspicion are planted. It is unfair for one spouse to assume all the responsibility, just as it is unfair for one to be completely left out. Financial intimacy means that each partner is equally aware of and involved in the management of family finances.
