My husband’s family and my own had very different approaches to finances and so it shouldn’t have been a surprise that we had disagreements about how to use credit. We were surprised anyway because we assumed that we thought alike, and we didn’t. (There’s lots more about relationships, see my Secrets of Happy Relationships series.)
