Money often is a language between spouses both in marriage and divorce. In this paper, I plan to discuss money issues that lead up to or help to precipitate a divorce, the financial status of the husband, wife and children, and finally the effect that financial settlements have on the development, emotions and psyche of the persons involved. I will try to present the problems from the viewpoints of both the men and the women involved. Yet it is difficult not to focus on the women since they seem more often to be the injured parties, and since divorce as we know it today has much to do with changing perceptions of women’s roles in society.
