Editorial Reviews

Review

“I love this book! Scott and Bethany Palmer are money experts who have had to work through real issues in their marriage. Every couple should read this book and give it as a gift to others they care about.” (Jimmy Evans, President and Founder, MarriageToday )

“I keep reminding couples that challenges such as financial problems should be met by turning ‘to’ each other, and not by turning ‘on’ each other. This book goes a long way to helping couples become a team.” (Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Internationally Syndicated Radio Talk Host, Author of In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms )

“The Palmers shine a bright and much needed light on the biggest problem most couples face: money. Packed with easy-to-use tools, this book will help you assess and dramatically improve the health of your financial and intimate relationships.” (Brent Kessel, CFP, author of It’s Not About the Money )

“[The Palmers] offer practical help and hope to those who long to deftly navigate the unpredictable waters of financial fidelity. The sooner you adopt the Palmer’s no-nonsense balanced perspectives--the better off you will be--in many more ways than one!” (Ellie Lofaro, author of Spaghetti for the Soul )

"The first time I cheated on my wife we ended up without a kitchen. Hi, my name is Scott, and I have committed financial infidelity." That's the first line in this book, and I didn't put it down until I read the whole thing. The authors are the real deal.

This year you may not be able to increase your salary and benefits, but you can increase your financial acumen. In the long run, that may be one of the best benefits you'll ever receive.

Bethany and Scott Palmer, "The Money Couple," have written a practical and timely guide to help couples with financial communication. Their unique idea: the root cause of money troubles is not a lack of money or budget systems, it is financial infidelity.

You'll learn about the five money personalities: Saver, Spender, Risk Taker, Security Seeker, and Flyer (as in flying by the seat of your pants). What's your personality? How about your spouse? What happens when Spenders marry Savers? (They explain and give amazing counsel.)

Bethany and Scott list the "Eight Simple Rules for Fighting Fair," including Rule #7: Expect to Blow It. "We certainly don't expect you to fight fair every time you argue--we don't."

"Financial infidelity can consume your relationship like a wildfire taking hold in a field of dry grass," they write. "You end up spending what seems like every single moment talking about money, fighting about money, crying about money. Or you stop talking about money altogether because it's just too painful." Their solution? "Consider this book a bucket of water you can use to douse the flames."

The Palmers recommend simple tools for fixing financial headaches: the Money Dump and the Money Huddle (a monthly meeting). Their resource-rich website, TheMoneyCouple.

My betrothed and I have differing views of money and it really worried me. This is a second marriage for me and a third marriage for him. When I found a recommendation for this book in a magazine article I immediately ordered it. Praise the Lord, my sweetheart and I both read the book and worked through the ending chapters. We will continue to use suggestions from this book. We may never see totally eye-to-eye on money issues, but we can talk about them and understand each other so much better. I am now totally comfortable with marrying this person. Thank you so much for such a helpful book.

After getting married, I was looking for a book about how to integrate my spending and saving habits with my husband's. This book is more for couples who already have financial problems, not for couples who are being preemptive.
