"New couples often talk about their compatibility in terms of common interests, how many kids they want, their religious beliefs, and where they want to live. But few couples consider their financial compatibility: their views on dual-income homes, taxes, saving, spending, and debt. And disagreements about money can put a huge strain on a relationship--not only is money the #1 reason many couples fight, those who argue about their finances once a week are 30% more likely to divorce than those who argue about it a few times a month. But by talking openly and often about their finances, partners can avoid conflict and unpleasant surprises down the line. They must discuss whether they're saving adequately, investing wisely, and spending responsibly. Certified Financial Planner Jeff Motske has been helping his clients to work through financial issues for over 20 years, and now, in The Couple's Guide to Financial Compatibility, he shares the important questions that couples must address in order to achieve a healthy financial relationship. Following a partnership's progression from first combining finances to planning for retirement and beyond, The Couple's Guide to Financial Compatibility gives couples the tools they need to communicate about money, keep their finances healthy, and keep their relationships going strong. Key questions in the book include: - How do we create a game plan for financial success? - OK, we made a budget. So, why don't we have any money? - Whose debt is it anyway? - How do we align our expectations? - Where do we want to live? - What happens if one of us loses our job? - How much does it cost to raise children from birth to graduation? - What is the best way to get our kids through college and find a career?"-- Provided by publisher.
"Couples often talk about their compatibility in terms of common interests or values, but few consider their views on dual-income homes, taxes, saving, spending, and debt. Disagreements about money inevitably end up putting a huge strain on a relationship. By talking openly and often about their finances, however, partners can avoid conflict and unpleasant surprises in the future. Certified financial planner Jeff Motske now shares tips--for example, set a monthly financial date night--and key questions for couples to discuss in order to achieve a healthy financial relationship. Following a partnership's progression from combining finances to retirement planning, Motske gives couples the tools they need to keep their finances healthy and their relationships going strong."-- Provided by publisher.
