The 5 Money Personalities

 
I am glad that the authors include an explanation in the introduction of this book, because it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. This is not a “how to” book on budgeting and finance so much as it is about improving your marriage. According to the authors, all couples argue about money.  This book will help you stop those arguments, and move forward in how you address your finances.

There are no suggestions on how to budget, create budgets, invest or save money. This book is all about money personalities (there’s five!) and how your view of money, affects your relationships. If you’re a huge Dave Ramsey or Larry Burkett fan, this book may not appeal to you.

If you and your spouse are struggling in your marriage, due to a difference of opinion on how to handle money, then you might find some help in this book.


Book Description:

The hidden key to a healthy relationship is not just managing money but understanding how the other approaches money.

Every couple argues about money. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for 40 years or dating for 4 months, money touches every decision you make as a couple—from the $5 cup of coffee to the $50,000 car. And when the two of you don’t see eye-to-eye on how much to spend or how much to save, that’s when arguments turn into ugly toxic fights that leave both persons feeling hurt and angry. It’s why money has become the #1 cause of divorce in the U.S. Obviously, something needs to change. The reason this crisis has not been addressed is because it has never been identified, defined, or given a name. Scott and Bethany Palmer, aka “The Money Couple,” have identified and defined this problem and offer concrete solutions to fix it.

Once you know your Money Personality, you can get to the root of money arguments and start really working together. You’ll discover what has an impact on your loved one’s money decisions, and you’ll learn how to talk about money in a way that’s actually fun! You’ll figure out how to put an end to money secrets and lies once and for all.

It’s not just about money management, and it’s definitely not just about overcoming debt. It is a whole new way of living that will change everything in your relationship. Tens of thousands have already been transformed. Are you ready?
