Financial Strain Taking a Toll On Your Relationship

I've received a ton of emails lately asking me to blog about the state of the economy, and how financial stress within marriages today are at a feverish pitch. Even one of the comments I received was, "The economy will get better, but will my marriage still be in tact when it does?" Ouch, sounds serious. So let's take a…
