Why do so many people live in financial denial or avoidance, especially when it comes to money? Because denial is a great place to be, especially when one partner becomes emotionally activated when the topic is broached by their partner. Denial is a very effective tool used by our Protector parts to keep the wounded and Exiled parts of ourselves from having to feel unresolved pain. In a survey of 1,001 adults, 36 percent admitted that they avoided thinking about their financial difficulties. Financial denial can show up in any coupleship, regardless of if they are financially successful or not. Denial can cause havoc in a coupleship and comes in two general varieties: when both partners are in denial and when one partner is in denial.
