Great resource for new couples,
This review is from: Smart Couples Finish Rich: 9 Steps to Creating a Rich Future for You and Your Partner (Paperback)I'm happy to say that I was recently engaged. With that I've been considering the idea that I'm now going to be sharing every piece of my life w/ someone else. And honestly, the idea that there will be 2 heads knocking together, especially financially, instead of self-dependency was a scary idea.
So I went shopping around the store and opted to buy this book by David Bach because of some of the passages I read while waiting around. And I'm happy I did.
First, Mr. Bach is (from I've read) a successful financial planner w/ an earnest heart towards truly giving competent advice. And it's apparent as you read the book that he just wants you to make the right decisions in life for you and yours.
Some of the biggest take-aways for me were the values he espoused in order to ensure that you're living according to the ideals you and your spouse share; and the importance of teaching your child the benefits of saving at an early age.
Sure, there are plugs w/in the book, but nothing so annoying that it detracted from the overall reading. Great buy, give it a shot. I'm not married yet, but I feel my fiancee and I already have a headstart not everyone's lucky to have.
