Your Money Your Marriage

July 06, 2018

The main purpose of this book is to help couples communicate, trust, and work together in their marriages and their finances.

The couple shares their own stories of how they handled situations both positive and negative with practical tips and ideas.

Personally I feel this was written for couples just starting out and not those seasoned in marriage. I will be gifting this to a young couple who is about to tie the knot.

Chapter titles include:

1- What is Financial Foreplay?

2- What did you say? From Different books to same pages.

3- Did you say Divorce?

4-  Who leads your life?

5- Who's the boss?

6- Where's that at again? Scattered to Organised.

7- What are you missing? From fear of missing out to love of showing up

8- Whose the centre of your marriage?

The main idea is that communication is key. You must be open and honest about everything in your marriage, especially your finances.


God’s vision for your marriage is far more than mediocre, and money and sex are two of the most common tension points. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

In Your Money, Your Marriage, Brian and Cherie Lowe offer straight talk and power principles for getting your finances back on track so you can get back to your romance. Take it from them—the Lowes worked off $127,000 in debt in just four years, and emerged not only financially free but better together.

Join Cherie, personal finance blogger at Queen of Free, and Brian, family law attorney who’s seen it all when it comes to marital money struggles, in this journey to help you and your spouse go from different books to the same page. Through candid and hilarious stories, fresh ideas and practices, and a few winks along the way, Brian and Cherie reveal the secrets to “financial foreplay” able to help every couple thrive together in finance and romance alike.

You’ll learn how to:

Develop “passionate patience” with each other toward a shared financial goal

Identify unhealthy financial habits

Save smart on date nights

Sort through misaligned expectations as a couple

Beat the comparison game

Cultivate a stronger relationship on a budget of zero dollars

Couples share much more than a bank account or even a bedroom—they share a sacred union. Imagine what your marriage could be if you could put cash conflict behind you. Your Money, Your Marriage is an invitation to find out, and to thrive together
