Many married couples end up buying a home together at some point during their marriage. Owning a home can be a great feeling, and many homeowners end up making changes to their homes to better suit their personalities and needs.
Homeownership can be a wonderful experience. Many couples choose to do renovations to their home. While it may seem like a good idea at the time, many homeowners end up arguing with each other throughout the renovation process and it appears that home renovations can actually take a pretty hefty toll on a couple’s marriage.
Home renovations can be very stressful for couples and can lead to arguments that only cause more problems in the relationship. Many couples may end up fighting over designs or decorations, and eventually see that they have nothing in common anymore or they cannot agree on anything. Home renovations can also lead to arguments over finances, especially if one spouse wants to spend more money on the home.
Many couples can attest to starting a home renovation project with a positive attitude and excitement only to realize down the road that it ultimately led to their decision to get divorced.
