Money is one of the top reasons couples break up and get divorced. Sometimes, a relationship is topped by overarching money struggles, and all of the emotional stress that comes with being unable to make ends meet.

Other times, class differences splinter a relationship, as growing up with different financial access and philosophies can affect a relationship in a myriad of ways. If you're going to have a healthy relationship with someone who came from much more (or much less) money than you, the key is to communicate honestly about your feelings. Dancing around issues of class privilege, and hiding strong opinions about work ethic will only result in bottling up feelings that will eventually explode.

This financial tension is crystal clear in a recent post on the Am I The A*shole subreddit, where a man asked if he was wrong for calling his girlfriend a "spoiled brat" after she received a computer from her parents.

AITA for telling my girlfriend that she’s a spoiled brat?

OP shared that he's been with his girlfriend for almost a year, and during that time he quickly learned she comes from wealth and receives money from her parents regularly.

My girlfriend (24F) and I (35M) have been together for almost a year. She comes from a wealthy family. They own several houses and buy my gf everything she wants whenever she wants it.
