Money leads as a cause for fighting

From Times Wire Services

Money can't buy you love -- in fact, it's probably the root of your relationship problems.

Nearly 60% of American couples said in a recent survey that they argue over money at least once a month -- more than they bicker over sex or household responsibilities.

The online poll of 1,500 people, conducted for PayPal, also found that although about half of U.S. couples share a bank account, nearly 1 in 4 shop online as a way to keep their partners in the dark about what they're buying.

Still, 80% of couples said they were happy with how finances are managed in their household.
