The issue appears to become worse as couples get older, with 44 percent of respondents between the ages of 44 to 54 stating that money is the single biggest cause of conflict within their relationship.While the survey didn't measure why financial conflict is more highly reported in that age bracket, here's one hypothesis: couples over 40 need to deal with a huge array of financial obligations.Do they gloat about the idea that they'll "soon" be making double-digit returns, just as soon as this next get-rich-quick scheme comes to fruition?Or do they stare at you blankly the moment that you casually mention your 401(k) account?
