From the Publisher

* ""Given the state of the current economy, their caution is valuable."" (Library Journal, November 15th, 2009)
In good marriages and bad ones, money is never far out of the picture. And in hard times and rocky relationships, it's an especially thorny issue that can't be avoided. Family counselor and relationships expert M. Gary Neuman and his wife, Melisa, use their professional and personal expertise to instruct couples on how to talk -- and how not to talk -- about family finances. In Good Times & Bad encompasses far more than general communication issues about money; it also covers coping with specific situations such as serious illness, job loss, and spending on leisure activities and nonessentials.
Library Journal
Although this guide could be used to treat all sorts of relationship pitfalls, family counselor M. Gary Neuman (The Truth About Cheating) and his wife, Melisa Neuman, focus on helping couples have civil, constructive conversations about money. Instead of offering investing advice or tips on trimming the family budget, they teach couples how to discuss their finances without accusatory itemizations of credit card bills. Anyone, especially one who has been in a relationship, will likely benefit from at least some of the advice parceled out. Money matters are one of the more mundane and oft-avoided relationship topics, but the Neumans make a strong case that it's vital that couples resolve issues. Given the state of the current economy, their caution is valuable.
