Putting it simply, the number one cause of divorce is hurt feelings. That may sound overly simplistic, but it's accurate in a general sense. Do your feelings get hurt when your spouse seems interested in someone else? Of course. Do your feelings get hurt when you spouse doesn't like to be intimate as often as you do? Yes. And do your feelings get hurt when your spouse micro manages the checkbook and monitors everything you purchase.  Again, yes. Those hurt feelings can pile on one another and lead to disastrous results.

One way to avoid hurt feelings over the family checkbook is to put some agreeable rules into place.  In her new book, Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security, Jean Chatzky, the Today show's finance guru, teaches couples how to avoid those hurt feelings. For example, did you know that a couple who saves $10,000 is seventy percent less likely to get divorced.  Go to www.jeanchatzky.com/category/nbc-todayshow/ to watch Jean Chatzky give more useful tips on how managing your money can lead to a happier marriage.
