Tips on getting holiday spending harmony with spouse

By Megan Telles. CREATED Dec 11, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Don't let holiday spending allow your relationship to go bankrupt.

Relationship experts have some advice to help you manage the economic expectations between you and your spouse during the holidays.

They call it "financial infidelity" when one spouse is not honest about finances, and they said the holiday season makes us all especially vulnerable to a wandering wallet or credit card.

There's nothing that puts a strain on relationships more than disagreements about money.

Experts said it's important to have a united financial plan during the holidays, so one spouse does not stray financially and feel the need to overspend.

Not sure how to do that?

Some tips include: Tackle the problem, talk with respect and hold each other accountable. Once you have a plan, stick to it.

According to a report by the McGraw-Hill Federal Credit Union, 48-percent of couples have disagreements over how much to spend during the holiday season.
