Editorial Reviews

Jimmy Evans
“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.”
Doctor - Laura Schlessinger
"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."
Brent Kessel
“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.”
Ellie Lofaro
“[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!”
