CENCI, Claudia Mara Bosetto  e  HABIGZANG, Luísa Fernanda. Money and conjugality: couples positioning and strategies for financial dilemma resolution. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp. 159-174. ISSN 1983-8220.

Objective. This is an empirical study, with a qualitative design, that aims to understand how couples use their positions and strategies to solve financial dilemmas. Method. Six couples (twelve married individuals), who had the highest and lowest levels on the dyadic adjustment scale, participated in this study. Participants were selected based on an earlier survey, that evaluated 246 married individuals, in order to investigate relationships between meaning and money management, and dyadic adjustment and marital conflict. Content analysis of data was performed. Results. The couples used positions and strategies that reproduced financial patterns learned from their families of origin; besides, they agreed that dialogue should be the main strategy to solve their financial conflicts. Conclusion. Dialogue on finances can provide an affective approximation between the spouses and a higher empathy to understand difficulties that come from the conjugal life cycle.
