"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.

This book is a good read, even if you aren't having financial problems with your spouse. It's a good book to understand that as people we have our own thoughts and opinions about money and what to do with it, so this book is good for two people to read and better understand each other. It could really help people that have big financial issues with each other too!

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.

GREAT BOOK! I'm a counselor, and many marriage clients struggle with money matters. This book has a new perspective on the relationship we all have with money. Much of that relationship comes from our past experiences and how we responded (and continue) to respond those experiences. I bought 5 copies and gave them away to my clients.

I wish I had a hundred of these to pass out to everyone I know!
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll see yourself and your partner (and all you meet!) in a way you never did before.
