This made us recollect early in our marriage when we would disagree about finances and have unproductive conversations. It’s very common for what should be a reasonable discussion to explode into a fight. We’ve put together four tips you can use to avoid fighting with your partner about money.

First, it’s important to recognize your own fears and limiting beliefs about money. Most of us have these, but overcoming them requires introspection. Consider your fears, and where they stem from. Realize that most of our fears never become a reality.

Secondly, consider your partner’s fears. Once you understand their background, and the things that trigger their fears, you can start being more careful. If you know your spouse is fearful of lack, you can do your best to not feed those fears.

Also, know your numbers. Think about your Freedom Number, and calculate your net worth. If you understand your goals and where you’re headed, you’ll be more centered in reality.

Our last tip is to make and trust your plan. You both need to be the same page, but if your plan is based on shared values, you can move in the right direction intentionally.
