Publisher's Summary

Talking about money with your spouse or fiancé can be as scary as walking blindfolded on a tightrope strung above a blazing fire. It can also be a beautiful, intimate pursuit that helps you feel more connected than ever. How your partner responds to your financial concerns - with support, or lack of concern - affects you more profoundly than how any other person on the planet does. When they dismiss your concerns, it stings. But when they listen, care, and move toward you with understanding, empathy and humility, well, that's how babies get made. It's hard to be open, honest, and vulnerable about such a personal topic when your emotions are at stake. Standing in front of each other in nothing but your financial underwear can get awkward. However, the rewards of engaging in discussions on money far outweigh the risks of avoiding them. Other books on finances obsess over complicated math and reverse hedge funds. But the most important asset has been overlooked: how to have encouraging, worthwhile conversations on money. One Bed, One Bank Account delivers hope to married and engaged couples by offering an enjoyable framework for improving financial communication. Whether you're just starting out, in the middle of a financial crisis, or doing well, this book delivers a surprising and encouraging truth: having better conversations on money will strengthen your marriage.

I knew it would be good, but it was better

This book was not only informative, but fun and exciting. They take a touchy subject that most couples never talk about it and actually make you WANT to talk about your finances. Every couple should read this book. No everyone who read this book
