Bringing up financial struggles, debt, or addressing the elephant in the room that one person in a couple makes significantly more money than the other one can be awkward. However, it's incredibly important to be on the same page when it comes to saving, spending, or splitting household bills and other shared expenses in a marriage. Lending people money can be a risk if you expect to get the money back, but it can also be a great way to help someone through a hard time. While it's not the most fun part of being in love, being transparent about finances is often critical to a healthy relationship, and it's better to be honest up front before you're surprised down the road.
