Happy- Go -Lucky

Why is it on Rosh Hashana the first thoughts of our prayers are directed to ask Hashem for money? "Please", we beg, "Just give us that high paying job so I can buy myself a pedicure, manicure, or new car. I will be forever greatful".
Which brings me to the question, which spouse is the cause for most of the financial problems in a marriage? Are the women the instigators or do the men, with their vices for fine wine and poker, bring upon the house a dark gloom?
Be what may, may God grant us this coming year HAPPINESS as well as the means to satisfy the tax collectors and the school tuition. Remember, as hard as it may be, to believe- that money isn't everything.

Shlomo Hamelech in Koheles states "Kesef Yaaneh Es hakol" - Money is the answer to everything. see Rashi there as he interprets it quite literally.

May you find all that you seek this year. Good luck.

Peace!

I dont think when we are davening for money we are davening for pedicures.
When one cannot afford basic needs, or tuition or even rent, that is when they are davening.
Some of the biggest problems in a marraige are usually financial.
I dont think you can blame either party within a marraige.
Some women need to "Keep up with the Joneses", and must buy the most expensive French clothing available for their children, and some men feel like they must get a new luxury car every two years.
I think society is really spoiled now, and with everyone looking at their neighbors and coveting their belongings, things can get out of hand.
But I agree with NormalJew, money can solve a lot of problems and get rid of a lot of worry within a marraige.
May your college education get your far in life.
