Format: Paperback
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!!!

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!

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.

As a financially independant woman about to dive into marriage, I found this book gave me a lot to think about. It is important to still be able to have fun while saving for the future. I think it is also important to remember though, that not everyone falls into the trap of just throwing away money. While I've seen several of my friends throw money away at Starbucks, at snack machines, and on excessive amounts of alcohol, not everyone who is struggling does that. Some people are just spread too thin. If only making more money were easier! The suggestion to get into an entreprenurial attitude does help, but I felt that they could have shared more of their list than just "write a book". It is hard for someone earning $20,000 a year to imagine people making six figures and still having trouble with money.

Most couples fight or at least have disagreements about money. Great advice and time to talk about finances before getting married could save a lot of marriages. The couple who wrote this book know first hand what it's like to have money differences. So they've shared from their vast experiences as a couple, but also as financial advisers. The story of their life is told from both of their points of view and is interspersed with helpful tips and ways to apply the information.

Each chapter begins with the couple discussing a pitfall or problem they had or one that is common. The chapter ends with questions that couples can use as a jumping off point for further discussion. The chapters are short and manageable. The information, while basic, is something that all couples should know upon entering into marriage. I would recommend this book to any couple just starting out or to the ones who are still struggling with money and aren't on the same page with their spouse.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
