Eighty-four percent of U.S. married couples say money causes tension in their marriage and more couples argue about money than sex, a survey found.
A nationwide survey of 1,000 spouses -- 500 husbands and 500 wives -- conducted for Money magazine found seven in 10 admit to arguing over money. Money is at issue in more fights than sex or in-laws.
Husbands were especially clueless about knowing what mattered to women when it came to money -- consistently underestimating how much women care about almost every financial issue including: investing, saving for retirement and paying off debt, Money magazine reported.
Women were better in gauging what matters to men about money, but they tend to give their husbands too much credit, believing the guys care more about paying off debt and saving than men actually do. (UPI)
