Love and Money: Designed to Be Different – Fighting to Be the Same
How we handle money often leads to conflict in marriage. But the underlying issues are often miscommunication and misunderstanding. Love and Money will lead you to a greater depth of intimacy in your relationship and change the way you look at each other and your finances forever.
Don’t just survive in your marriage – when both of you can thrive.
In a Rut or Packing Up? Meet the Stuckeys and the Baileys
The Stuckeys are “stuck” in a rut. They have resigned themselves to their present condition and parked their relationship at this comfortable but boring address in life. They have bought a lie: “This is as good as it will ever get.”
The Baileys are at what seems to be an insurmountable impasse. The only solution they can see is to throw in the towel – to “bail” out! They, too, have bought a lie: “There is simply no hope for our marriage!”
These two couples are a microcosm of individuals and families we can relate to from our jobs, in our neighborhoods, in our churches – even ourselves. They teach us about two factors that impact marriages more than any others: how we understand Love (relationships) and Money (finances).
While how we handle money often leads to conflict in marriage, the underlying issues are often miscommunication and misunderstanding. Love and Money will open your eyes to how communication and money can work well in your marriage. You’ll gain a language to communicate better, a view that your differences are really strengths, and the understanding needed to blend your differences into true teamwork. You’ll learn how to plug leaks in your current finances and how to make the most of your future finances.
Don’t just survive in your marriage – when you can thrive.
