I think borrowing money from friends or family could harm relationships. If you are strapped for cash and think about asking a friend or family for money, decide what is needed more,money or friendship. For example, if you asked your friend or family to lend you money, they will lend you, and when you are asked to return it, it may wreak havoc on your relationships. I believe this is always harmful. It is not a good idea to borrow or lend money
in relations to relatives or family.
