Do you and DH fight about the money?
How does your budget affect your marriage?

Oddly enough we never fight about money.

I am very grouchy when I do our budget but once it is done we are fine. It is hard deciding who is going to get paid and see everything that is building up on us. That is less us fighting and more me being in a bad mood.

Do you and DH fight about the money? Nope, never have really.

How does your budget affect your marriage? Probably improves it as if we owed a bunch to others it would make us both edgy, but that's moreso the end result of not owing anything versus the budget itself. I don't think the budget itself contributes to our marriage except that it makes things run smoother so we both know where our dollars are going.

No, but our money is still separate since we aren't married. I do think he could use his spending money more wisely though.

If anything, I get frustrated that we aren't doing well enough and he mellows me out by pointing out that we need to have a little fun now and again and that we are still improving every day. We discuss things, but do not fight.

I don't think we fight. I get frustrated that he doesn't seem involved in the budget and I am doing most the work to get our bills paid off. But other than that its not really a fight.

No, there's really nothing to fight about. The use of the money is up to my discretion. If there's something he wants to get and we can't do it at that time, he accepts it as being best for the family.
