Couples can fight over the value of things and if something is “worth it” regardless of their financial situation. They may argue about the best way to raise their children with different financial values.

Fighting about money does not only come about when a couple doesn’t have enough of it to get to by. In many couples, at various levels of income, debt, expenses, spending, etc., fighting about money is frequent and repetitive.
