Marriage books aren’t really my thing, as I tend to think it might be a waste of my time. I thought the title of this book was intriguing, but the size of the book was overwhelming! I kept putting it off to the side, thinking about reading it later. All I have to say is WOW! It was far better than I expected. I even got my husband involved in some of the ideas and questions that were posed. I would totally recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It really captures the essence of marriage on so many levels.
Don’t let the title fool you, as this book doesn’t only talk about money issues. It digs so much deeper and allows the reader to really assess everything about their relationship. It really separates the man from the woman. You will understand what your partner thinks, and feels through so many fantastic examples, figures, and statistics. There are four authors who have different voices and make this book a real winner.

This book can be for anyone who is a relationship. It really touches on things that matter to every relationship. Finances go much deeper than I ever imagined. But it also makes a big deal about communicating with your partner, and sets it up for you to learn how to communicate to get along and be happier. They have made it easier to navigate by separating it into 4 sections:
1. Invisible Forces: This section allows you to see where some problems may start and how both partners have very valid points to their though process. It even includes a great quiz to try out with your spouse. The answers were very surprising. I also found myself thinking about how there are things that I can do better at in my own finances.
2. Now that we understand, what do we do? The ideas seem endless, and the best thing about this book, it that it gives you food for thought. There were lots of little things that made me stop to think about. I was able to skim through some areas, but found myself dragged back by the awesome examples and research that they had to make their points valid.
3. Show Us the Money: Start saving, learn how to stay out of debt or get out of debt, and investing. All of the information that seems to be overwhelming and not taught very often in life. These skills are a great skill to take into your relationship and start on right away. This would also be great to read, to freshen on all of these topics. I had a lot of oh yeah moments, and am excited to say that Brent and I made some goals of our own thanks to this book!
4. Finding Your Target: Commitment, and reality are the focus points of the last section. By showing your commitment by following through, and communicating better with your spouse is going to make everyone a lot happier.
Good luck and go out to read the book today. It is wonderful, and if you do have financial or communication problems than this book is especially for you. Like I have already said, I was surprised that I found things that I could work on in my relationship. We get along really well on communication and financial decisions. But we have goals, and I am excited to start them out right and stay committed!
