Happy Couples Know How to Talk About Money

The number one cause for divorce is financial infidelity. Now "The Money Couple" reveals the missing ingredient needed before any financial program or plan can work: healthy financial communication. This book tells you how to:

  • Although sometimes it felt like this book was all over the place, there was definitely some valuable material in here that I plan to go back to in the future. Much like Gary Chapman's "Five Love Languages," this book provides readers with five different personality types (called "Money Personalities"), and gives details on how spouses with conflicting Money Personalities can work together. The five potential Money Personalities are:

    -The Saver
    -The Spender
    -The Risk Taker
    -The Security Seeker
    -The Flyer

    There is a test provided inside the book (called the Financial Relationship Index) that will help you determine your level of financial infidelity. For example, if you ever make secret purchases without telling your spouse, that is considered financial infidelity.

    This book doesn't provide a plan on how you can make a budget, rather it helps you become aware of the type of person you are in relationship to money. Knowing your Money Personality, as well as your spouses, will be helpful in avoiding fights over money.

    Final rating = 3.5 stars

  • "The first time I cheated on my wife we ended up without a kitchen. Hi, my name is Scott, and I have committed financial infidelity." That's the first line in this book, and I didn't put it down until I read the whole thing. The authors are the real deal.

    This year you may not be able to increase your salary and benefits, but you can increase your financial acumen. In the long run, that may be one of the best benefits you'll ever receive.

    Bethany and Scott Palmer, "The Money Couple," have written a practical and timely guide to help couples with financial communication. Their unique idea: the root cause of money troubles is not a lack of money or budget systems, it is financial infidelity.

    You'll learn about the five money personalities: Saver, Spender, Risk Taker, Security Seeker, and Flyer (as in flying by the seat of your pants). What's your personality? How about your spouse? What happens when Spenders marry Savers? (They explain and give amazing counsel.)

    Bethany and Scott list the "Eight Simple Rules for Fighting Fair," including Rule #7: Expect to Blow It. "We certainly don't expect you to fight fair every time you argue--we don't."

    "Financial infidelity can consume your relationship like a wildfire taking hold in a field of dry grass," they write. "You end up spending what seems like every single moment talking about money, fighting about money, crying about money. Or you stop talking about money altogether because it's just too painful." Their solution? "Consider this book a bucket of water you can use to douse the flames."

    The Palmers recommend simple tools for fixing financial headaches: the Money Dump and the Money Huddle (a monthly meeting). Their resource-rich website, TheMoneyCouple.com, includes the Financial Relationship Index (FRI Survey), the Money Personalities Quiz, their blog and much more. Financial infidelity is the number one cause of divorce. Preserve marriages: your own and others. Buy this book for yourself, your friends and your colleagues at work.

  • GREAT BOOK! I'm a counselor, and many marriage clients struggle with money matters. This book has a new perspective on the relationship we all have with money. Much of that relationship comes from our past experiences and how we responded (and continue) to respond those experiences. I bought 5 copies and gave them away to my clients.

  • I wish I had a hundred of these to pass out to everyone I know!
    You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll see yourself and your partner (and all you meet!) in a way you never did before.

  • My betrothed and I have differing views of money and it really worried me. This is a second marriage for me and a third marriage for him. When I found a recommendation for this book in a magazine article I immediately ordered it. Praise the Lord, my sweetheart and I both read the book and worked through the ending chapters. We will continue to use suggestions from this book. We may never see totally eye-to-eye on money issues, but we can talk about them and understand each other so much better. I am now totally comfortable with marrying this person. Thank you so much for such a helpful book.

  • I'd recommend this to all couples, whether new or not. It gives couples the opportunity to look at each other in a new light, a new way, using the Money Personalities. As a result, readers would have a better understanding of how their partners think about money, their strengths and weaknesses, so they could both capitalize on it, moving forward.

  • Lots of marriage counseling, not much financial advice. A pamphlet bloated into a book with lots of redundancy. Glad I got it cheap.

  • Good book
