The #1 cause of divorce is Money. Couples must be honest, open and work together in regards to their finances. Not being honest or hiding debt will only cause problems in a relationship.

How can couples work together on their relationship?

The first step is to understand the personality of the other person. Usually opposites attract and one is a free-spirit and one is a nerd. The nerds are list makers and planners, they like to be early and like doing a budget and paying bills. The free-spirit is easy going, has a big heart and is very giving but doesn't like doing the budget or paying bills. Once you understand the differences in personalities, you then can work together in your strengths as a couple.
