Which Partner Gets the Final Say in a Conflict About Money?
If you’ve been in a serious relationship, I’m sure you’ve experienced a conflict about spending money. And I’m not talking about the mammoths like buying a house. Those decisions are a different beast entirely. If you don’t have the money, the decision is made for you automatically.
