Having that open and honest conversation can be extremely difficult for couples in the beginning, says Cindy Marques, a CFP and financial-literacy advocate in Toronto.
“It’s not unusual that one partner is unwilling to co-operate and claim they feel nagged or hounded by the other, and this can be quite frustrating to both sides,” she says. “In some cases, this unwillingness stems from a sense of fear or shame, especially if they’re dealing with a lot of debt.
