Money can be a source of conflict in almost any relationship, whether with your family, friends, or your girl or boyfriend. Whether you have it or you don't, money can stir a wide range of emotions but it's important not to confuse an emotional issue with a financial one (or vice versa). Learn all this and more in Money and Relationships.
