A few days back, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Matt Bell who is an author, speaker and blogger over at Matt About Money. Matt focuses on Christian finance, and he has already published two books: Money, Purpose, Joy: The Proven Path to Uncommon Financial Success and Money Strategies for Tough Times.
Matt’s current book project is focused on the topic of Marriage and Money, particularly as it relates to young couples both before they get married and in the early years after their vows. Our interview was focused on the issue of Joint vs. Separate Bank Accounts. However, as we spoke for nearly an hour, a few additional themes came up.
Matt is aware of the awesome community we have here at Engaged Marriage, and we decided it would be great to get your feedback on a few key topics. And there’s a chance that your response could be featured in his upcoming book!
Please check out these questions and leave your response to any or all of them in the comments below:
If you’re married, what were some of the biggest initial challenges you faced in bringing your financial lives together? Financially, what do you wish you had known or done before getting married? And what financial issues continue to come up in your marriage?
If you’re engaged, what questions do you have about doing the whole money thing together as husband and wife?
Thank you so much for your feedback and continued support! I know Matt appreciates your input, and I love seeing your responses since it provides good direction for future blog posts. 🙂
Dustin Riechmann created Engaged Marriage to help other married couples live a life they love (especially) when they feel too busy to make it happen. He has many passions, including sharing ways to enjoy an awesome marriage in 15 minutes a day, but his heart belongs with his wife Bethany and their three young kids.
