Money and relationships are two powerful forces that can either strengthen the bond between partners, friends and family, or create significant challenges.

Studies have shown that 17% say their partners have lied about debt and 20% say they argue with their partner once a month about finances.

“Time to Talk” is a day that encourages people to share their personal insights and voice what they’re really feeling – this year we want people to explore different financial perspectives in relationships and understand how money can impact them in different ways.

In this blog, Salary Finance, our financial wellbeing provider, uncovers some of the common money conflicts that can pop up in relationships and shares tips on how to tackle them.
