Money and marriage, two hard topics.
Why, because everyone has their own views. Who controls the money? Who makes the money? Who saves the money?
You both do! Marriage is about team work even in the hard times.
Trust, communication and teamwork are important even when it comes to money.
I remember going shopping one time and I made the comment that I had just spent so much on groceries and how the boys were the ones who were going to eat it all.
A guy in line said “you combined spent that much money. You are a unit now, counted as one.” He was right.
You and your spouse are a unit. One against the world. One against your debt and a couple together working and communicating your way through your money issues.
If you haven’t taken Financial Peace University put it on your to do list. Make it a must do in the new year.
If you are struggling with debt or want to learn more about money. Or if you simply want to be able to sit at the same table as your spouse and be able to talk about money without getting mad.
Financial Peace University is a must. You will learn how to communicate about money. Tackle your debt together.
You will learn about budgeting, the financial baby steps to get you to where you want to be.
