(NewsUSA) - While your love may know no bounds for your spouse, things can get a little more tricky when talking about finances.
Financial issues are one of the most cited causes of conflicts in a marriage, and financial problems, including debt and disagreement about money management, are among the top issues in divorce as well.
Merging your life, including your financial life, with someone else's can be challenging, but setting up a solid financial plan early in marriage can help preserve harmony and nip money conflicts in the bud. Data from Ameriprise Financial show that at least one-third of couples disagree about money at least once a month on topics including savings and discretionary spending.
Fortunately, today's technology offers new options to help couples navigate shared and individual finances. More American couples now maintain separate bank accounts instead of, or in addition to, joint accounts, and the latest banking apps offer flexibility, security, and ease of use. MovoCash is one example of a digital payment card platform that offers consumers with a variety of financial life hacks as alternatives to traditional banking services. Anyone in the U.S. can open an FDIC-insured MOVO card account that is easy to use and doesn't require gold-plated credit.
MOVO's easy design offers a simple financial strategy for couples: each partner can open a separate account for immediate spending needs and personal discretionary purchases, and the couple also can maintain a joint account for major expenses such as savings, bills, and home expenses. Purchases and payments can be made quickly and directly from a phone.
In addition, funds can be transferred instantly between MOVO accounts, and the system allows for direct deposits to manage incoming paychecks and outgoing payments. The MOVO card can be used anywhere Visa is accepted, so that cuts down on the use of credit cards and the potential debt of credit-card bills. The app helps users track transactions and monitor balances, making it easier to avoid overspending and stick to financial goals while leaving room for each partner's pleasure purchases.
