"There is no such thing as a money problem in marriage." Financial expert Ron Blue and his wife, Judy, insist that marital problems are never about money. But they're often about communication, particularly when it comes to the thorny issue of finances. Marriage after broken marriage testifies to just how charged the topic of money can be, and how important it is for husbands and wives to know how to discuss it with one another. In Money Talks and So Can We, the Blues help you and your mate communicate openly and honestly about the vital topic of managing your money. This is not just a book on family financial planning. It's about how to operate as a team, overcoming your individual weaknesses and uniting your strengths to cultivate vision and prosperity in your marriage. In Part One, the Blues help you bridge the financial communication gap. You'll consider the purpose of money and marriage, get a crash course on effective communication, and learn how to put together a truly enjoyable planning weekend. In Part Two, you'll learn how to combine your efforts to handle some essential monetary priorities, from the basics of developing a budget, to getting out of debt, to investing wisely, to creating a will, to the pros and cons of a dual-income household, to the challenges and rewards of giving, and more. Money Talks and So Can We will help you and your mate work as partners on the critical area of finances. Together, you can sow the seeds of security for your future, and enjoy today the benefits not only of financial stability, but of deepened trust and fruitfulness in your marriage.
