Edited: The word "aspect" means:

One part of a situation, problem, subject, etc.

On the other had, "facet" means:

One part of a subject, situation, etc. that has many parts

So it seems that they can be interchangeable in many situations. I need to know if in my following self-made sentence they can be substituted or not. If not, then why:

1) He seems to have a wealthy family and I don't think he would have a problem from the financial aspect / facet.
2) He seems to have a wealthy family and I don't think he would have a problem from any aspect / facet.

I wonder if you could let me know which word works better in these specific cases and why?

By this question, I am going to find some possible fixed phrases using "aspect" and "facet" and also find out the probable nuances between these two words.

I think that they both can be used in either case above without any change in meaning.
