Thriving in Love and Money
Over 90 percent of couples experience some level of tension around money. In fact, money issues are the number one stressor in relationships. So many books try to fix the surface problems, such as how to budget and what to prioritize when it comes to finances, but the issues go much deeper than just a simple spreadsheet.
How do men and women view money differently? What do most couples fight about? How can they get on the same page? What questions should men/women ask their significant others before marriage? There are emotional and spiritual components to finances that most couples ignore. How can you agree on a budget if you disagree with each other on the basic purpose of money?
Thriving in Love and Money is based on original research Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn have conducted to get to the heart of these issues. And just as they did with their bestselling books For Women Only and For Men Only, they will use this research to provide the answers and insights you need to break the tension and provide the unity you're looking for. Let this book deepen your understanding of each other, leading to clear communication, peace as a couple, and better financial decision-making.

My thoughts: As with the other books that I have read by the Feldhahns, I love that they packed this book with information, statistics, and true stories that were shared when they put together their research.
Most of us have heard that money can be a sticking point for couples and their marriage. The Feldhahns have taken the time to break that down and show why that is. I love that they point out our responses and what that says about us. Over all, my husband and I are on the same page when it comes to money, but this was still a helpful book, since I like to think purchases through and shop around, where as he will just buy something if he needs it when he sees it. This is an excellent book for both married and single people alike.
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
