Money Matters In Marriage

Money matters in marriage can be a real source of contention if couples don’t understand and apply God’s timeless truth to their financial situations. Money problems frequently occur in marriage because the husband and the wife have different personalities, family backgrounds, and life experiences. Understanding and assigning differing financial roles and responsibilities is important to ensure a healthy and God honoring marriage.
