YOUR MONEY, YOUR MARRIAGE by Cherie & Brian Lowe

I really believe that there are two issues most married couples disagree on, even if they do not talk about it: sex and money,   which is why I was excited to read and review YOUR MONEY, YOUR MARRIAGE by Cherie & Brian Lowe. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this to a couple who has been married for years; though newlyweds would benefit from this book.

The concept of blending money and marriage into one book is an excellent idea and the one plus this book has is the discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Personally, the questions were to simplistic and would not lead to areas of agreement with my husband and I.

I am sure many people would love this book. I know a few cutesie couples who don't have divorce threatening problems in their marriage that would use this book as a tool to maintain their relationship. The church I once attended would use this book in one of their small groups.

For everyone else I would suggest seeking a financial adviser to help put them on the right path. Since money problems acts as a deterrent for intimacy and marriage counseling to help with improving communication. There are separate books that can address each.

YOUR MONEY, YOUR MARRIAGE is a great concept that, for me, did not deliver. After 22 years of marriage my husband and I still don't agree but we have learned how to manage not using any of the concepts presented in this book.  As a Tax Preparer I have married clients that have disagree about how to manage money and they too have discovered a way to agree without being  disagreeable.        written by Marsha L F Randolph
