Your Money, Your Marriage
God’s vision for your marriage is far more than mediocre, and money and sex are two of the most common tension points. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
In Your Money, Your Marriage, Brian and Cherie Lowe offer straight talk and power principles for getting your finances back on track so you can get back to your romance. Take it from them—the Lowes worked off $127,000 in debt in just four years, and emerged not only financially free but better together.
Join Cherie, personal finance blogger at Queen of Free, and Brian, family law attorney who’s seen it all when it comes to marital money struggles, in this journey to help you and your spouse go from different books to the same page. Through candid and hilarious stories, fresh ideas and practices, and a few winks along the way, Brian and Cherie reveal the secrets to “financial foreplay” able to help every couple thrive together in finance and romance alike.
You’ll learn how to:
Develop “passionate patience” with each other toward a shared financial goal
Identify unhealthy financial habits
Save smart on date nights
Sort through misaligned expectations as a couple
Beat the comparison game
Cultivate a stronger relationship on a budget of zero dollars
Couples share much more than a bank account or even a bedroom—they share a sacred union. Imagine what your marriage could be if you could put cash conflict behind you. Your Money, Your Marriage is an invitation to find out, and to thrive together.
My thoughts: Whether you are single, newly engaged, just married, or a seasoned couple (or somewhere in between!), this book is an excellent resource to pick up and get you thinking about how money affects our marriage and relationships. In pre-marital counseling, a big focus was on how we viewed money, since it can be such a dividing topic. This book will help you evaluate how you spend and view your money. I love all the resources and questions with each chapter that help to get you thinking and talking! I highly recommend this one.
I received this book from Book look. This is my honest review.
