Hi Prof,
I am recently married and have had the same revelation as you - I never realised the impact that different attitudes to $ can have.
We have found that keeping accurate records of where we spend money is really useful. Not so that we can blame each other for reckless spending etc, but so that we have a forum for discussion. This is not as boring or painful as it might sound (!) We set aside the same time each week to discuss, and sit down and work on it together.
It has become more like a joint project than a penny pinching ordeal!
Perhaps a method that could assist others?? OTY.
