5.0 out of 5 stars Couples Money is a brave & honest guidebook. August 29, 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is a rare and honest story of a real life professional couple and the lessons they have learned after getting clear with themselves and each other about their money beliefs. They write candidly and with a sense of humor the techniques they have used to create a stronger and richer relationship with each other and with money. My husband and I are most grateful they are sharing their struggles and victories with the rest of us. We found two pennies on the ground today and giggled when we heard the clinking sound they made after we dropped them into our own big glass change jar! Amazing...the book is already helping us make our financial shift together!

Most people have "head trash" about money. Then you get into a relationship and your significant other has different "head trash" about money. Then the fun and games begin.

So many relationships either end or experience stress because of this. Couples Money helps you to get on the same page which always improves a relationship. As the Feltons say, "Once you know what we know, you will not look at money or each other in the same way."

This book also contains the tools and strategies that Chris and Marlow used to make a complete 180 on their finances and their relationship to money!

This is powerful stuff!!!

As an author of my own personal finance book for I was extremely interested in purchasing this and comparing Marlow and Chris’ thoughts and advices to my own.

I think the book is worth the price and there are a lot of views that I share.

LIKE
- Each chapter has his and her perspectives. Great idea!
- Used “Basket” methodology to explain different categories of family money.
- Well-grounded psychological analyses and concepts.
- Some exercises were quite useful like, “One place to start is by writing down the image of the person you want to become. Be very detailed and use other successful people as an example.” Honestly, I don’t find useful all the actions steps about different lists.
- “Worrying about what others think or how we look stops us from taking steps toward financial independence.” There’s a meaningful chapter on public status and how we make financially dull decisions just because we obsessed about what others think of us.
- Each chapter ends with several action steps to take.
- I find Chris’s testimony about his transformation very touchy. He said, “Only when I connected emotional reasons to saving money (Marlow’s happiness, our marriage working, time with my kids) was I able to shift and override my ego, my need for approval from others, my need to look good, and my need to be right.”
- Creative chapter on being entrepreneurial and creating additional sources of income.
- Great exercise on listing big financial goals and comparing priorities with your partner. That’s the one I should have used in my marriage.
- Marlow and Chris described the main characteristics of financially harmonious couple at the end of the book.

COULD BE IMPROVED
- I really missed more examples.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for all couples May 27, 2014
Format:Paperback
This is a great money management book for all couples as Marlow and Chris share their heartfelt stories and experiences through their own perspectives with efficient action steps to show us the way to live the lives we dream of; all while becoming united as a couple by doing the actions together, being on the same page, working together and not against each other. I love their book so much I cite Couples Money in my book “Not it” An Approach to Life in the finance chapter, plus have listed “Couples Money” in my recommendations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing October 26, 2011
By Fina
Format:Paperback
I love this book. It has changed several aspects in my relationship with my fiance Jim. If you ever get the privilege of meeting Chris and Marlow Felton they truly are an amazing couple and have a marriage that most people hope for and want.

After reading this book i was able to easily apply the exercises presented at the end of each chapter, with Jim of course. Jim and I discovered new things about each other that we never even talk about or thought about. I was amazed at how many aspects of money effect my relationship with Jim and visa versa, it opened my eyes to see how my financial life was going to change after Jim and I get married. Which is fine, thanks to Chris and Marlow. I feel so lucky and blessed that their book came out before Jim and I get married. Phew, good timing.

Chris and Marlow incorporate a unique way of utilizing team work within their book and they bring up thoughts and issues that i think most people are or were too afraid to talk about, making it "ok" for other people to talk about these issues with their spouse.
Chris and Marlow explain very well in simple terms the traps and habits couples can have together regarding their money providing great tips and solutions to solve common and unique dilemmas couples have.

I am so grateful for Chris and Marlow and thank you for putting together a book like this it means a lot!
