"Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy your way out of unhappiness." That line from the classic Hitchcock film, Psycho, has always stuck in my mind because, in so many ways, it rings true. Money
problems have been cited as one of the top three reasons for divorce today. This alone makes it very obvious that money does play an important role in relationships.
The primary reason that money plays such a huge role in our personal relationships is that it is the currency around which we build our lives. What we have, what we can do, where we live...all of our basic opportunities are dependent upon having the financial backing to attain them. We can see our dreams fulfilled, both individually and as a couple, if we have the money to make it so.
