It’s no surprise that money is one of the biggest reasons couples fight, given that it’s a huge factor in determining your stress, happiness, and the kind of life you live in general. But it’s also extremely personal, and sometimes talking to someone about finances can feel almost as intimate as standing in front of them completely naked. But when you’re in a relationship, pushing money talks under the rug is a guaranteed way to stumble over them later, probably at the most inconvenient time. Here, 11 money-related chats every couple needs to have in order to be as blissed out as possible. Continue reading

8 things that terrify men when it comes to marriage

 

By Woman’s Day

Surprise! Staying committed to one woman for the rest of their lives isn’t husbands’ biggest concern. They did freely choose to get married, after all. But that doesn’t mean your man is fear-free about marriage. Issues like putting him second in your life and bashing him with your friends may scare him. “Husbands’ fears are rooted primarily in rejection and self-consciousness,” says licensed marriage therapist Carin Goldstein, creator of BetheSmartWife.com. Read on for eight common fears husbands have about marriage, plus expert advice on how to ease them.

  1. He’ll be on the back burner.

With kids, jobs and more vying for your attention, it’s easy for a husband to feel like he’s second best. “As marriages progress, men often feel that all they’re good for is a paycheck,” says Julie Orlov, psychotherapist, speaker and author of The Pathway to Love. To remind your husband that he’s still important to you, Orlov suggests carving out 30 minutes of one-on-one time each day with no talk of kids, in-laws or money.

  1. You’ll turn into your (or his!) mother.

He loves the charming qualities you possess that remind him of his mom—like your superhero parenting skills and incredible work ethic—but he doesn’t want (or need) two mothers. Likewise, there are probably a few things about your mother that get on his nerves. And many husbands worry their wives will inherit those characteristics, says Karen Sherman, PhD, author of Marriage Magic! Find It, Keep It and Make It Last. She suggests acknowledging the situation with something like, “I know my mother annoys you sometimes. Let me know if you notice me doing those same things.” It’s a simple way to allay this fear.
