Review

"This a great read for an already married, considering getting married, or serious relationship couple" - Barbara Friedberg, founder of barbarafriedbergpersonalfinance.com

"It is great for helping your family find a common language when it comes to money"- Anton Ivanov, founder of dreamscashtrue.com

From the Author

Given my 10 years of experience in corporate finance, 5 years in personal finance and an MBA, you would expect my wife and me to have a perfect money management system. However, during two years of marriage, there was a lot of miscommunication in discussing our money issues. For me, Home Finances for Couples offers a hope that, although we made some mistakes, it's not too late in our relationship.

I've been reading around 50 American and Canadian personal finance blogs over the last three months to extend my knowledge and understand the money issues arising in modern type of long-term relationships. Bloggers advise on personal wealth management, smart financial decisions, money and relationships, family budget, student loans, spending habits, savings, being frugal, investing, paying debt off, family values, financial freedom and sustainable life. In Home Finances for Couples Workbook, I provided links to top articles from those blogs.

I truly hope that money becomes one thing you never argue about with your loved one!

My husband and I are newlyweds and working on merging our finances together. So, we bought the print version of this book. It seems like this book was written as a kindle or e-book and not for print. Unfortunately, the author and editors never made the needed adjustments for print. He provides many useful links, but since this is an actual book, I can't click on them; I cannot type them into my internet browser because the actual http address is not included. For example, "Check the series of 10 blog posts call: How We Designed Our Budget." The font changes to indicate that there's a hyperlink there; it would have been nice to include the actual website address (www. ---.com).

In terms of the content, I did like how the book is small and not intimidating-looking. He provides exercises for you to go through with your partner. It is a little bit basic, but a good starting point to have those difficult financial conversations with your spouse. I did NOT like how some of the content was "traditional" (to put it nicely) or "sexist" (to put it frankly). There's a section where he describes how women and men think differently about money: "Men have to earn more than women. This is a controversial statement, but I would still like to talk about it. You might call me 'old school,' but looking at my life and the other happy marriages around, I do endorse the above statement regarding low-income families and couples in debt." This kind of language really turned me off and discredited some of the good advice he actually had.

So, in summary, I would NOT recommend this book because of it's poor quality and, at times, bad advice. There are many other non-sexist finance books out there. Good luck!

This is required reading for any serious or married couple. The exercises are fun and insightful. Ostapiv starts off by encouraging couples to write down their financial goals, rank them, and then compare. Great jumping off point for a family money talk. He adds in some important accounting concepts with a light touch. Another helpful recommendation was the idea to schedule a regular couples "money talk". The resources are too numerous to mention. The book is filled with exercises, advice, and inspiration. This a great read for an already married, considering getting married, or serious relationship couple.

Have just read the book through on a single breadth. The workbook gives a lot of useful tips and exercises which we will certainly start doing after my spouse reads the book too. I really enjoyed the actionable way of presenting the material with much information given out as references to blogs posts and sites. The book is also accompanied by a review of useful software for managing personal and couples finance. I'm considering buying the full book after we work through the available exercises.

Thanks so much for the efforts!

The Home Finances for Couples Workbook is a must have for all couples who share financial saving, spending, and earning responsibilities! The workbook was concise and well laid out. The worksheets were incredibly helpful not only for actually figuring out financial information, but for providing a neutral ground for starting talks about financial decisions with your significant other. The information provided in the links were excellent for supporting and clarifying the worksheets and providing extra background knowledge. I highly recommend getting the ebook version so that you can click on the links right from your computer.
