Control Via Money...

If you are in a relationship, and pool your finances - do you have equal access, as does your partner? Bills should come first, of course; but after that, or even with that, do you have access to the finances you need?

Many times, one person may use finances to control the other. Even to the point basics like bills, or groceries, etc, are misappropriated. 

They hold their partner "hostage", so that even if they wanted to leave the relationship, they couldn't. They usually use any means possible, but money is a biggie. 

If you discuss with your partner about more access to your mutual funds, and they tell you things like, "You know you're no good with money", or "Don't worry, I'll take care of all you need", or similar statements; with NO offer to work toward mutual money knowledge, you MAY want to see if you can push this topic further. 

Now, if this topic brings you absolute fear, are you in a good relationship? Should you revisit that? 

Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
