financial stress

It’s hard not to notice the rising costs of everything these days.

From a gallon of milk to the price of gas or even home prices, everything seems to be skyrocketing.

Inflation is affecting marriages around the world too. Financial stress is a very real thing.

With inflation, remember the effects are not just about your financial intimacy. Financial stress can affect every single one of your 6 Pillars of Intimacy.

When you think about the biggest challenges you are facing financially, you may have thought of things like:

  • Maintaining optimism
  • Saving money
  • Housing prices
  • Trying to afford the rising cost of things while keeping kids involved in their same activities
  • How to cut back/what gets cut back
  • We have less money to do things, and this is causing tension

When you hear this list, you can hear the struggles, the impact that this current financial season can have on your emotional, physical, spiritual, and recreational intimacy.

It’s not just that prices are going up. It’s that increasing prices are affecting how the two of you relate to one another in every area of your marriage.

Extraordinary couples are aware of those things that could create disconnect and go to extraordinary lengths to keep every pillar strong, even when things are out of their control.

It would appear that inflation will be going nowhere for a while, so it’s important that the two of you begin proactively creating a plan to navigate this financial challenge. Make sure to be mindful of what being intentional can do for the two of you.

You’ve got to be proactive, starting now. Waiting for the future will only further affect your marriage.

Money problems destroy marriages. Get on the same page with your spouse and work together towards a common goal.
