They say the majority of failed marriages circle around money. This is false. The majority of failed marriages have to do with the lack of communication about money.
Communication smooths any road. You don’t have to eloquent or articulate, you just have to have the courage to contact a person and open up the lines. Sure, there will be misreads and the occasional “I’m sorry; I didn’t understand.”
But the sure-fire way to muck up a situation is to not communicate at all.
