money and break-ups

Son: Do you know, 90 per cent of marriage break-ups is caused by money?
( He must have got the stats from tv)
I hope we make up the 10 per cent!

Money mentioned in that statement quite obviously refers to the shortage of money.
But I cannot help but think that an excessive surplus of money may also lead to a
marriage break-up? There are important ingredients that make up a healthy marital relationship which money cannot buy?

Do you agree?


  • Money plays quite an important part no doubt. But a lot also depends on the couple's level of communication, commitment and the views regarding relationships are suppose to be.

  • i think you should aim for 0%, ie. no break-up, because in a marriage break-up, there are no winners, only different degrees of losing.
