Financial incompatibility is one of the leading causes of divorce in the United States. According to a study conducted by North Carolina University, 39% of couples said money was the primary cause of most arguments while 54% cited it as a secondary cause. Now, couples can test their financial compatibility and reduce future "cash clashes" with a new 23-question quiz developed by financial specialist Jeff Motske, founder and CEO of Trilogy Financial. According to Motske, taking the test will help both parties learn how each feels about a wide range of financial issues from credit card debt and saving for a new home to making purchases and retirement planning.
"One of the most overlooked yet important aspects of a relationship is how the two of you perceive and deal with money,â€ said Motske, whose company recently hit the $2 billion in client-invested assets milestone. "I and other financial planners know all too well how conflict in this area can unravel an otherwise healthy relationship. We hope that the quiz helps couples determine whether they see eye to eye on the most important issues and come to terms on others."
