Introduction:More and more marriages are failing because couples don't take the time to have a plan of action. Before you say "I Do" read these tips we learned from the book Managing The Money Purse.
When you're a new couple and planning your wedding you may forget to have the money talk. In the book talk about changing your point of view towards money. Make it a positive in your life versus a negative and the focus will change.
In the book the couple who wrote it Robbye and Scott discuss how (her) emotional spending caused them a lot of debt that they are still paying off. The key word here was "together" they conquered this. It wasn't a blame thing.
Once a week or once a month it's important to sit down together and have a look at spending habits. One suggestion that I thought was nice was to call it "a date night." Again, it's all about perspective and how you approach the situation.
Setting up a mission for your life as a couple is key. Scott and Robbye Schroeder the authors of Managing The Money Purse suggest that you make your road map early. Know each others goals and ambitions and conquer it together.
Managing the Money Purse is about a revised version of The American Dream-instead of "get rich quick" our book is about getting a mission for your life that is fueled by shared values that leads to fulfillment and positive social change.
