Introduction: The purpose of this study was to identify living experiences of dual-career couples as regards financial issues.
Method: This research was done by qualitative approach and by the method of interpretive phenomenology. In this study, the researchers selected and interviewed 12 dual-career couples with snowball sampling and 12 dual-career couples with marital conflicts through purposeful sampling. Interviews were analyzed using the Dicklman, Allen, and Turner’s (1989) method, which is team-based.
Findings: Analyzing the participants’ experiences led to the identification of two main themes under the heading of financial conflict (with the sub-themes of absence of financial preference, inappropriate financial relationships, absence of financial commitment, weakness in financial skills, individual financial management, and financial violence) and financial compatibility (with the sub-themes of lack of financial preference, optimal financial relationships, financial commitment, joint financial life, and equal financial skills).
Discussion: The results of the study showed that the scope of financial issues in the lifestyle of dual-career couples is not limited to talking and arguing about money and budget. Moreover, what is more important than financial challenges and money-related disputes is how such couples understand these financial problems and the way they deal with them. The dual-career couples also can move toward financial sustainability with the help of appropriate prioritization indicators, appropriate financial relationships, financial responsibility, team-based financial life, and financial skills acquisition.
