Do you and your spouse or fiance ever have disagreements about your finances? Of course you do. It is only natural that we would have some differences of opinion regarding our spending decisions, especially when you are combining households and dealing with all of the other life changes that accompany marriage.
However, it is important to recognize that money fights and financial difficulties are widely regarded to be one of the leading causes of marriage problems and are often cited as a main reason for divorce.
It is vitally important that your marriage include a solid financial plan! The good news is that it is actually pretty easy to make smart decisions about money and set your marriage up for financial success. This is one of my favorite topics, so you can look forward to plenty of information about having a great career, buying a home, budgeting, becoming debt free, investing, giving, retirement savings, planning for college funds, buying a car, spending wisely, increasing your income and much more.
I have read many great (and not so great) books and free online articles on these subjects, and I love checking out useful forums and podcasts. So you can also expect some honest reviews that cut through the B.S. and show you where you can find the best tools to master this important aspect of your marriage.
Stay tuned for tons of useful posts that will give you the knowledge and resources you need to have a “million-dollar marriage”!
