This article focuses on the finances of couples. In the continuing saga of how men and women differ when it comes to money, an Ohio State University researcher reports that husbands are more likely to report higher figures for annual income and net worth than their wives, while wives are more likely to report higher household debt than their husband. Such divergent views could significantly affect their personal relationships and how couples save and invest their money. Helping couples understand that most husbands and wives do not share similar views of the family's finances is a first step in reducing conflicts surrounding money issues.
