Do you and your spouse agree financially? Do you find yourselves fighting over money more than you would like? It doesn't matter if you are newly-weds or "oldly-weds," decisions made about money affects your relationship. It is especially frustrating when the husband-wife team do not see eye-to-eye on expenditures leading to ugly arguments that drive a wedge in your marriage. We know that money/financial issues is the #1 cause of divorce in the US so learning how to get along financially is essential.
In the book The 5 Money Personalities by Scott & Bethany Palmer (aka The Money Couple) we learn how to speak the same love and money language as our spouse. Challenging you to start with a 90 Day program the Palmer's first ask for your commitment (and even sign your name to it). They want you to be 100% committed to making your financial relationship a priority by learning how to respect the wants/needs of each other and understand & respect your differences.
Then the Palmers introduce you to the 5 Money Personalities. Saver, Spender, Risk-taker, Security Seeker and Flyer. I bet you can already figure out where you fit...and probably your spouse too! Breaking down the 5 personalities we are introduced to their strengths and weaknesses eventually learning how they can work together to reach common ground.
I enjoyed reading through this book, in fact, it came at a great time for us. In the new year my husband and I were already struggling to find common ground on what was most important, where our money was going, where it should be going, etc. This book is so much more than a "financial book." It is truly a relationship and marriage book that helps you reclaim your marriage and eliminate the battles over money.
Since I have read this book I have scoured the money couples website for further information. You can find their webpage and other helpful links below:
