When you think about marital strife, a variety of issues may come to mind: romance (or lack thereof), sex and infidelity, in-laws, how to raise the children. Surprisingly - or perhaps not - the number one issue that most couples fight about - and the one that most often is a good indication of an eventual divorce - is finances.
Would you know if your spouse was hiding assets from you? If you have not taken a lot of interest in your marital finances, it is very possible that he or she has accounts or property of which you may not be aware. If you are going through the divorce process, you may be getting the short end of the stick -- so to speak -- in your final settlement unless you are able to uncover these hidden assets.
