Summary

If you want to learn how to deal with money as a couple in order to maintain a healthy long-term balance within the relationship, then keep reading.

Finances are tricky, and working on them in a marriage or in a strong relationship can seem almost impossible. How many times have you and your spouse blown up at each other because someone liked to spend while the other wanted to save? How many times did a purchase get hidden, and then when it was found out, it resulted in a fight and hurt feelings? Would you like to organize your finances better in order to have a clear vision to reach certain goals? If any of these situations sound like your relationship, it is time for you and your spouse to sit down and talk about your finances.

This guidebook is going to take some time to discuss finances in the couple and how you and your partner can work together to get those finances in line in no time. Some of the topics that we will discuss in this guidebook to help you and your partner get on the same page with finances include:

  • Identifying the money personalities that you and your partner have
  • When you and your partner should talk about finances
  • How money can affect your relationship
  • Why it is so important for couples to talk about finances and to be on the same page
  • How to segregate out your money with your spouse
  • How to get your finances organized
  • The basics of setting up a budget that works
  • How to start bringing in more money if your budget needs a boost
  • The biggest financial mistakes that most couples make
  • The issue with financial infidelity
  • Tips and tricks to get out of debt so that you and your partner can finally gain financial freedom.

Even if you have never dealt with the subject of finance with your partner, or even are completely unrelated to the topic, you can finally do it constructively.

This guide will allow you to maintain a solid and healthy long-term relationship, because talking about this topic with the person you have chosen for your life is absolutely fundamental, even if it is not a topic you would like to talk about.

It is so important for couples to get on the same page when it comes to their finances. But, many times, each spouse is worried about discussing finances and how much conflict that can arise. This guidebook has the practice tips that you need to finally get those finances in line and to ensure that you can gain financial freedom with your spouse so that you can experience the married life you've always wanted.

Good audible for any Couple

As a financially independent woman about to dive into marriage, I found this audible gave me a lot to think about. It is important to still be able to have fun while saving for the future. I think it is also important to remember though, that not everyone falls into the trap of just throwing away money. While I've seen several of my friends throw money away at Starbucks, at snack machines, and on excessive amounts of alcohol, not everyone who is struggling does that. Some people are just spread too thin. If only making more money was easier! The suggestion to get into an entrepreneurial attitude does help, but I felt that they could have shared more of their list than just implementing one unique idea. It is hard for someone earning $30,000 a year to imagine people making six figures and still having trouble with money.

Fighting over money? Financial stress? Get Couples

I just finished listening to "Couple Skills: Smart Skills for Smart Couple" audible. I was impressed by the true practicality of this audible. It truly gets to the essential issue that concerns many relationships - honest and transparent communication. Everyone knows couples fight over money. That's like saying couples eat food. However, financial stress for most relationships is only a symptom indicative of deeper underlying beliefs and values that are producing unhealthy results.

What Couples Money offers those seeking financial help is an opportunity to dig deeper into what we believe about ourselves, our partner, and the role money plays in our lives. It's a catalyst that helps us jump start critical communication and openly explore our feelings and belief systems. It's also a relationship tool that helps couples get on the same track and pursue a common goal - a happy and fulfilling life together. The process alone [of transparent communication] will bring as much relief to hurting couples as debt reduction, saving money, and investments will.

If you are fighting over money, if you are under heavy financial stress, if you want relationship help, then I highly recommend this audible as your starting point for relief.

A refreshing perspective on a tough topic

Most people have "head trash" about money. Then you get into a relationship and your significant other have different "head trash" about money. Then the fun and games begin.
So many relationships either end or experience stress because of this. "Couple Skills: Smart Skills for Smart Couples" helps you to get on the same lesson which always improves a relationship. As Steve Keller say, "Once you know what we know, you will not look at money or each other in the same way."

Most beneficial finance book for couples I've got!

I purchased this audible as a way to structure a conversation around money with my partner. We have different styles around money and it's important to us in our financial relationship as much as possible. This book is made by an expert who happens to have worked in the finance industry and also as a therapist. The result is an easy to listening, easy to understand, supportive way to talk about money and for you and your partner to figure out how and why they may act/behave/believe as they do about money. It's okay to have differing points of view, and this book helps couples understand and accept that. I highly recommend this audible to all couples, and even somebody will benefit from it through their own self-dialogue.

I enjoyed listening to this audible

Couple Skills: Smart Skills for Smart Couples. provides couples with a platform in which to communicate about money. It also provides essential tools to work with on a daily basis.

Although I enjoyed the entire audible for its exceptional value....the "money types" were especially intriguing to me. The money types help us to see how we are hardwired and the workings of our unconscious patterns related to money. I have not found this type of description of the archetypes anywhere. Powerful and transformative.

If you are a couple this is a powerful self-help audible that will change your relationship with money forever.

Useful.

Although the book provides a fascinating personal finance management framework. I would highly recommend it for couples either married or engaged. It makes you look at the martial strength and challenges as it relates to money management.
