Seven Things Newlyweds Can Do to Avoid Arguing Over Money

A significant factor in marital success is how couples handle their financial lives. In fact financial discord could be the biggest marriage warning sign, according to a study conducted by researchers at Kansas State University.

"Arguments about money are by far the top predictor of divorce," said Sonya Britt, a Kansas State University researcher and program director of its personal financial planning program. "It's not children, sex, in-laws or anything else. It's money -- for both men and women."
