Money – a common cause of couple conflict

Published in Blog by Tavistock Relationships on January 25th 2017

A powerful video looking at how money can cause difficulties in relationships. This video is also available on our app, Between Us


Couples who have concerns about important topics like money, may have strong feelings about their problem and may find it difficult for them to work together in their partnership or marriage.

Our set of videos here show a fictional scenario like this. In the first video the different views about finances creates a vicious cycle of arguing where couples say things that hurt each other that they don’t mean.

Couple therapists are trained to enhance open and even communication and create a better environment for couples to deal with major challenges such as this. In the second video we show how the pair may approach with things in a different way.

If you find it is hard for you to talk with each other about your problems, seek couple or individual therapy at Tavistock Relationships. You can book an appointment to see us in London.

Alternatively if you can’t access our central London offices, our online therapy is available here.
