"We Don't Have Enough Cash To Do Things That Are Fun"
Have a heart to heart talk. Look at your financial problem objectively not emotionally. Both of you are not the problem, the problem is the situation. Prioritize on what you need most before splurging on new things or vacation.

"You Spent Too Much"
Check your cash flow together. In order not to overspend unnecessarily, list down your income and expenses. Both of you have to sacrifice for the family and cut down on personal spending.

"You Are Married, Act Accordingly"
Responsibility towards the family must be upheld by both of you, thus a joint account for household expenses is practical. In avoiding financial conflict, try to set how much both of you must put in and can take out. You have to agree on the amount of money that will be spent for the family.

"There Must Be Someone To Control Our Funds"
Identify which one is thrifty and good in handling money. Make sure when deciding between you and your partner to assign the one who is good in handling money and does not spend excessively. The person in charge must always take note of the cash flow. An open discussion must always be done between both of you. The worst case is that one is really saving money and the other one spending it all.

"Our Friends Are Richer Than Us"
Are you so sure? Maybe you're right and maybe you're wrong. Ask advice from people with experience who have achieved their goals in life. You don't have to ask how much they keep for saving but ask which principle did he or she follow that allowed them to retire early or enabled them have enough money to enjoy a carefree life. Be careful when you compare yourself with your friends as it can build hatred and angriness toward the particular person.

"Main agenda"
Be firm with the main agenda which is to set some money aside. Important stuff must be handled first. Both of you should must be aware of your financial situation. Conflicts within the family can be dealt with if both of you work together in settling it.
