Do you dread sharing grocery bills and credit card statements with your spouse? Do you cringe at the idea of asking your parents for money? Do you and your friends avoid discussing finances at any cost?
At Marketplace Money, we know personal finances can be a sensitive subject: We've heard that people find it easier to talk about sex than money.
But while Americans might not talk about money much, they sure do fight about it: it's one of the biggest causes of relationship strife and marital breakdown. According to a recent survey by the American Institute of CPAs, cohabitating couples quarrel over finances an average three time a month.
It isn't just the romantically involved, though.
We've heard from listeners who bicker with kids about smart phone payments and friends who argue over dinner tabs.
Now, we want to hear from you.
So tell us:
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
