$200 to keep your relationship alive?
Yesterday, Australia’s Abbott government announced couples will soon have access to $200 ‘relationship vouchers,’ which can be put towards counselling services aimed at strengthening their unions.
The scheme, which kicks off on July 1, will be trialled for a year and will be offered to 10,000 couples “who are married, intending to marry or who are in a committed relationship…” including those in same-sex and de facto partnerships.
What do you think? Is it a wise use of money or a waste? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
Until next time, happy wedding planning,
