Money is a huge issue in relationships today. When you and your boyfriend don't see eye to eye on money matters it can cause a serious rift in your relationship. Did you know that money was the main cause of divorce in the U.S. and around the world? It's true. Money is an explosive problem for relationships especially when not handled from the beginning. If your boyfriend is breaking up with you over money there's only one thing you can do. Get your financial house in order fast.

Here are a few small steps you can take to start making things right, financially, after your breakup.

Take on a second job. This will bring additional money in. It will also change how you view money now that you're working extra hard to get it. But, don't sabotage yourself by going out and spending all this new money you're making. You need to devote a portion of your additional income to paying off old debts and another portion of that income into savings. It's always a good idea to have enough savings for six months to one year on hand. Even if you manage to pay off all your old debts, keep the second job until you have adequate savings.
Pay off existing debts. Part of this is covered by the second job but you also need to work on investing money from your existing job to that cause as well. The more money being spent paying off debts the less interest you will ultimately have to pay. This includes car notes, house notes, student loans, and credit cards. Pay off the highest interest rate debts, like credit cards, first.
Eliminate unnecessary expenses. Starbucks may help you get your day started off right but at $5 (plus) a pop there are better ways to invest $150 a month. You could buy a nice coffee maker like one of the new Keurig models and gourmet K-cups and after the first month it will have paid for itself and you'll get a better cup of coffee each day (not to mention saving the gas of driving to Starbucks). Do you really need a weekly pedicure? How often do you actually go to the gym? Is cable a luxury or necessity? Little expenses can add up fast.
Come up with your own personal financial plan. Set goals for the future and come up with a plan for achieving those goals. Consult a financial planner if necessary and put the wheels in motion. It will be an impressive gesture for your boyfriend to see and it can make all the difference in the world when it comes to his ability to gauge your newfound financial awareness.

If you really want to get your ex back after you've broken up over money, this is the best way to show him that you're willing to change to save your relationship.
