Financial Disagreements and Relationship Satisfaction for
Married Asian Americans

Healthy communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution are thus important; couples who are equipped with these skills are bound to fare better. Couples, who purposefully engage in cooperative conversations about the respective financial socialization that they have retained, and who co-create new solutions/plans regarding money management, tend to report higher overall relationship satisfaction (Kerkmann et al., 2000). The purpose of the current study was to build upon extant literature to inform helping professionals – and the couples they serve – with wisdom to assist in the successful navigation of dyadic communication about financial behaviors and relationship satisfaction for married Asian Americans.
