Are you off to a good start financially in your marriage?

She’s a shopaholic and he’s a tightwad. Or he’s a spendthrift and she’s a penny-pincher. Are their marriages doomed to fail? Should they even marry at all?

It’s been said that the two most destructive problems in a marriage are mismanagement of money and poor communication. In this financial book, Money Before Marriage, Larry Burkett disarms these powerful threats by summarizing the key insights of wise money management.

Learn how to avoid the most common financial and communication pitfalls experienced by thousands of newlyweds by:

Applying to your marriage what God’s Word says about finances Discovering the practical aspects of managing your personal finances Answering the tough questions relating to debt, credit card use, life insurance needs, and separate bank accounts Preparing your new family’s first budget

Let Larry Burkett help you to smooth out the bumps in your marriage before they start. “The prudent sees evil and hides himself, but the naive go on, and are punished for it.” — Proverbs 22:33

Christian-filled way to open the lines of communication Though the first two chapters are filled with spiritual advice, the personality and spending surveys are eye-opening. If you’re looking for spiritual guidance as well as financial advice, this is a book for you. However, if you just want to get down to the nitty gritty of how you can cut costs, and live comfortably you might want to look into a more personal finance type of book.

Really helpful! This is a great book! My now-husband and I bought two copies and went through it during the months before we got married, and it was really helpful in showing us how to put together our first budget. Even more than that, we learned a lot about each other (and this is after four years of dating) and about how we each deal with money. I’m sure those lessons will help us throughout our marriage as we deal with new financial circumstances and situations. I would recommend this book to any…

Too Religious I’m sure this book has good financial advice, but before I even finished looking at the first chapter I felt bombarded with biblical references and mentions of God. My fiancé is Jewish and I am a Unitarian Universalist. This book just does not fit with our beliefs and we had hoped it would be a helpful book for all people, not just Christians.
