Domestic Dollar Disputes

July 11, 2006

Dr. Phil meets couples who are constantly fighting over the almighty dollar. From how to spend it to the lack of it, lying about it to using it for control, money has a firm grip on these relationships.

 

 

Tight with the Wallet

Chere says her husband, Clint, watches their finances so closely, he makes her account for every penny spent " down to a pack of chewing gum. Clint says he has to control the purse strings, or they would go broke.

 

Is Clint justified, or is he using money to dominate? 

 


 

Running from Responsibility?

Dawn has already filed for divorce from her husband, Kevin, because she's tired of carrying his financial baggage. She says she pays for everything and has even spent close to $20,000 making his child support payments.

 

Should Dawn go through with the divorce, or will Kevin change?
