One partner controls all the money: If one partner controls all the money and the other has little or no say in financial decisions, this can be a sign of financial abuse. The controlling partner may also restrict access to money, limit the other partner's ability to work or study, or withhold funds for basic needs such as food, clothing, and healthcare. (Unsplash) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
