💲👨‍👩‍👦 Money and Family Breakups

Has money contributed to rampant family breakups? The world is experiencing a lot of family breakups, but when one analyses the trend and reasons behind this, mostly it points to money. Either much money or poverty, have been blamed for the Breakup of most families. This is most especially in Africa and to be specific in my country Uganda. Probably you have also seen the statistics in your country. But the reality is that, there’s a lot of family breakups today and has been blamed on money to a big extent. In some cases, we have seen women who have decided to part company with their partners due to poverty. These women have gone on the live their own lives alone, or have remarried to other partners who are financially well off. This also applies the other way around. Do you think money is the major cause of family breakups today? What is your opinion?

Africa has the least record of broken families. I think greedy is a good adjective to qualify the reason behind rich homes that are divorced and in the side of Lack, impatient especially on the side of woman to keep her home.

A lot can be the reason for “breakups” now a day there is no end to reasons however I believe money and or more in my opinion the lack of money do cause tensions to be high in financially challenged couples resulting in stress related arguments that end up driving partners apart which then in the end can contribute to the “breakup” of families and or relationship. Like I have said above money does and can affect relationships and will put them to the test and may be able to drive people apart but it is not the only and or main reason.

Nowadays people consider money more important than their parents, partners and everything in the life.This love of money is the roofs of many breaks up in families, partnership, friendship. There is no longer a true love.

Money always play an important part in family breakups. Many wealthy family’s and ordinary family’s are in court cases and fighting among themselves to get more allocation from the properties and family wealth.

I don’t think so. It is true that most people would view money as the cause of family break up. However, regardless of this view, saying money is the root cause of family break up might be not accurate. Because there rich people who break up and poor people who break up too. If money is the root cause of family break up then the lack of it and the much of it cannot causes same result. The root cause is a weak commitment and patience among the couple.

Money does play a part in family problems but is not the main cause of breakups. Infidelity, unrealistic and unfulfilled expectations can also cause family breakups.

Kenneth — Not everyone. I believe that weak commitment and patience among couple is the root cause of family break up. As you have said, if the lack of money is the main cause, why do so many rich families failed? It means that money is not the main cause. There are also many examples where poor families are happy and have a successful family life because they have strong commitment and patience.

The reason for family breakups cannot be wholly attributable to money. It is usually the fact that people dont talk about the financial problems that causes the break ups.

Money is certainly a problem I am sure in most breakups and that would be the lack of money. If there was a breakup because of too much money I would suggest that one of the people in the relationship was not able to access enough money to live a life they thought they should be accustomed to.
Money is required to live a certain standard of living but in some people money corrupts and there has to be more than money to break up a relationship.

Money in my opinion is not the real cause of many breaks up. They are many families that are in poverty but still they love each other and are having peaceful live in their poverty. Greedy, lack of love, impatience, lack of commitment are among the cause.
If you love money more than your partner and your family i don’t consider it as a love. True love is unconditional.

If money is the cause of a family breakup you have to ask how strong was the family to begin with. Surely they can rise above it.

Money is very important for maintaining a family.we use money to buy food,accommodation, transport, medical bills etc.Now days no money no love.However, families with good money also break due to fighting between man and woman for financial authority ,family property.

Money is a tool that we use to buy, whatever you want, it gives us guarantee and power when we have it, it also gives us freedom, comfort and respect, so many people consider money more than another thing in the world, even Human beings is nothing for them.
If your parents, or someone you know has developed such feeling, you should be cureful with him. When a Man see money,its mind can change automatically and behave differently than before.

Often money is the main trigger in household separation. In my region, many cases are based on this. Apart from that, violence is also a major factor. However, it cannot be denied that in the household, finance is the foundation for the harmony of a husband and wife.

I don’t agree with it at 100% ,we always accuse money for being a good evil tool.the Real problem is not the money, it is the Man who is evil.

Hi, Leno. I agree with you.
 
People always blame the money for all problems they have when the real problem is within themselves. I think if we can have a happy relationship with money, our problem with having or not having money will also disappear. Have you ever thanks to your money for letting you have the things you wanted? If not, you should consider doing that because it will instantly alter how we feel about money.

Yes Ahmad, our love of money is greater than humans being love, we don’t have a true love each other,if We don’t blame God, we blame tools that we use to hurt other people for nothing. We have to learn selfish love, unconditional love to other.

leno & adharad, very right, love should be conditional, otherwise it’s not true love.

Leno Jean Pierre answered 4 weeks ago

They problem nowadays, is that people are addicted by the love of money, if it were possible, I’m sure some people would ask money when they give a simple greeting;do you immagine how we are greedy. All start there the love of money which is not in the money but in our heart.

Hi, Leno.
 
Maybe we should start by stopping blaming others or God for whatever happens in our life. We should take a way of thinking that whatever happened in my life is my responsibility. If it is good, it is my responsibility. If it is bad, it is my responsibility too. Thinking that way is beneficial to us and others.

Breaking up of families is happening more than ever. I think people are becoming lovers of money and as well lack patience to endure weakness of their spouse.

Money can not be as a result of family break up

Kenneth, I thought that it’s a combination of many factors and not just one. And money can be among those.

Hi, Jackson.
 
I agree with you. Money cannot be the sole cause of family break ups, but it plays a crucial part in the combination of causes that lead to family break up.

Jackson Mugarura answered 3 weeks ago

Very right Ahmad, no single factor can satisfactory explain the occurrence of a problem, it’s always a combination of factors that lead to an issue to occur. So, money can be one of the contributors.

Obviously money has done many good things in families, but a critical analysis shows that both good and bad things have happened.

Leno Jean Pierre answered 3 weeks ago

Yes Mr Jackson, i totally agree with your opinion, but i would like to notify you that money itself didn’t do anything, rather the person who own the money who did bad and good things with the money. This mean the owner and of the money has the choice to do whatever he wants, not money. 
Let me give you another example. If you park a car somewhere, it can spend years without doing anything but if a person take it to drive, he can perform many things, like transportation, while doing this, if he don’t drive carefully, he can make an accident and kill people around. It is the same with money. What we pursue with our money is the cause of evil.

I have no divergent view with you point Leno, I agree that it’s us who either use money well or misuse that it, but the end justify the means, it plays it role wheather good or bad.

Both parts have everything to loose regarding economy with family breakups.  They have to sell everything they have gathered together.  House, cars, boat, summerhouse and everything else and split the money that comes out of it.

Money and family break ups, You can’t separate family from money. Money is really important to maintain a good and happy marital relationship.

Kenneth, my analysis is that money can make or break a family. It’s a two way street 🙂
