"A poll of over 2,000 British adults by legal firm Slater and Gordon found that money worries top the list of reasons why married couples split up, with one in five saying it was the biggest cause of marital strife."
"About a third of adults with partners report that money is a big source of conflict"
Worrying stats when you're trying to balance the increased costs of parenthood with potentially reduced income.
In a few short years you've gone from being DINKYs to a particularly hilarious SITCOM.
Only this sitcom is the cause of tension, argument and relationship breakdown.
