Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although my husband and I are both well versed in basic finances and have been married more than a year and a half, we still found valuable information in this book. In particular, the second half includes many lists, such as

-what should be kept in a safe deposit box

-what papers do you need to keep for taxes/other reasons, and for how long

While there are many books written at this level about basic finances, this book is special because it is directed specifically at two people who are making (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime decisions about whether to add each others names to credit cards, whether they can afford to buy a first home, etc. I would highly recommend this book as a refresher, even if you feel you already know about money.

This is a great book!!

I bought it even before I got engaged because my boyfriend (now fiance) and I couldn't decide how to conduct our finances once we eventually got married.

Not only does this book give suggestions on different ways to combine assets and pay bills, but it talks about how to realistically plan your wedding budget, what you need to do legally after you get married (like where to go to change your name and in what order), how to save for a house down-payment, retirement, insurance, taxes, and estate planning. It is very readable and has great examples of do's and don'ts.

I highly recommend this book to any woman or couple who would like to know what the difference is between a 401k, IRA, Roth IRA, and a pension. For those who want to know what to do if she is a saver and he is a spender (or vice versa).

I really enjoyed it and you will too!

Format: Paperback
This book covers all the important money issues that couples have to resolve, whether they like it or not, if they want to build a sound and trusting financial future together-and it does so in the most down to earth, non-threatening and engaging way. The author's humor, generosity and honesty in sharing some of the ways she and her husband have managed and mismanaged their own finances over the course of their marriage really sets this book apart from other dry and mechanical books on finance. Many of the issues the author guides readers through are not easy ones to confront, but again, her humor, honesty and sweet humanity are the teaspoon of sugar that helps the medicine go down in the most delightful way. I can't recommend this book highly enough!
