The economic downturn can result in financial uncertainty, depression and feelings of loss of direction, but when it affects your marriage or significant relationship it really hits home.
Albertan’s have been here before, we’ve ridden the wave of the peaks and valleys of the oil and gas industry, but this time it feels different, it feels like we’ll be in the ‘valley’ for a longer duration this time.

What happens if the two of you have never shared the financial responsibilities or communicated about what your financial net worth is made up of? We often coast turning a blind eye in hopes of things turning around before the impact is obvious, but is that where you want to end up?
