Adrienne Laursen, licensed marriage and family therapist, tells you why sharing money with a spouse is so difficult and offers tips on how to cope with cash woes as a couple.
1. Plan a "money date" and arrive with a good attitude to discuss your intentions and goals
2. Discuss family traditions and expectations: How did you grow up during the holidays? How important is it to you to maintain those traditions?
3. Prepare to compromise at the end of the discussion
4. Set spending and saving goals
