Overview

An acclaimed couples therapist gives expert advice on how to handle the most common problem in committed relationships

Financial infidelity is the #1 problem in relationships.

    Helpful insights on protecting your relationship during money woes

    She rushes to the mailbox to intercept the credit card statement and make sure that the incriminating information remains confidential. He receives a nice bonus check but blows it all at a bar after work. Lying to a partner about money is all too common. Bonnie Eaker Weil, Ph.D., uses her 30 years of therapeutic experience to present a compelling study of financial deception and its impact on relationships. Attitudes toward money - even spending habits - are shaped during childhood. The trick is understanding them. Weil says adults who lack insight about their attitudes tend to perpetuate destructive behaviors that can harm their relationships. getAbstract believes that almost anyone can benefit from Weil's advice. She's right on the money.
