HASH(0xa30cd348) out of 5 stars Excellent! Feb. 6 2016
By Holly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Since the beginning of the year, I have been reading books on finances in an effort to provide recommendations to my daughter and her fiance. As they are planning the wedding and thinking about decisions they will make during their marriage, finances have come up quite a bit in their discussions (yay!). While my husband and I can look back and wish we had done a few things differently over the years, getting into debt wasn't a mistake we made. However, as I talk with friends and as they reflect on their own financial journey, it has become apparent that understanding the impact of debt on their marriages was lacking until they were in the middle of a mess. Arguments, stress, and a feeling of hopelessness have all resulted due to lack of financial education and the willy-nilly use of consumer debt. I am glad to see my daughter and her fiance trying to head off these problems before they start and I have already ordered a copy of this book to give to them.

While much of the book describes the way to get out of the mess you are in and doesn't apply directly to those not in a significant amount of debt, the stories are so heart wrenching at times that they serves as an excellent warning to others about not following that same path. I have seen wisdom described somewhere as learning from other's mistakes rather than needing to experience it yourself to learn from it. This book is an excellent description of the pitfalls just waiting out there unless you are wise enough to avoid them.

One of the strongest points of the book is she deals directly with the fact arguments about money aren't really arguments about money. There is so much emotional baggage about money that both partners bring to the marriage. She also does a great job at reframing the term "budget" and turns it into "spending plan" and explains the difference. One has such a negative connotation and the other is actually very positive.

Some of the same principles are explained in this book are also in her other books, but that is to be expected. Overall, I think this is an excellent book for couples just starting out as well as for couples already married and somewhere along the road of accumulating debt. It can suck the life out of people and take a devastating toll on personal relationships. This book doesn't sugarcoat the truth and offers hope and a step-by-step guide for getting out of a huge mess if that is where you find yourself.
HASH(0xa30cd3fc) out of 5 stars Gentle financial advice which really does put FAMILY FIRST July 4 2014
By Whistlers Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My newspaper used to carry Mary Hunt's column and I loved it and have read several of her books. All financial advice books, seminars, blogs, etc. pay lip-service to the idea that relationships are more important than money. Sadly, too many leave you with the impression that you are a failure unless you end up richer than Bill Gates and Warren Buffet combined.

This author served in the trenches of financial warfare. Growing up poor, she bought into the idea that money and "stuff" was the basis of happiness. She wanted the American dream and ended up with the American nightmare. Worse, it almost ended her marriage. She and her husband refused to declare bankruptcy, but choose to pay back every penny they owed and to learn to avoid debt in the future.

I think her books stand out because she never talks down to her readers. She understands that having financial problems doesn't necessarily mean that you are stupid, lazy, greedy, or self-indulgent. In reality, you may be any or all of those things, but money management isn't that simple, which is why many people don't benefit from "financial advice". As she says, "MONEY PROBLEMS ARE RARELY ABOUT MONEY ALONE."

In this book, she addresses finances in terms of marriage. Clearly, marriage affects your finances and finances affect your marriage. Couples don't break up over money, but over unresolved conflicts (which frequently involve money.) The couple which learns to work together to solve financial problems and work toward financial goals is the couple that will make it to the finish line.

Any married couple at any stage could benefit from this book. It would make a SUPER wedding or engagement present. As Mrs. Hunt wisely says, maybe there would be fewer divorces if people spent less time planning the wedding and more time planning the marriage!

HASH(0xa30cda2c) out of 5 stars great motivation Oct. 29 2011

I loved this book. It felt like it was written for families is minor-major debt which doesn't really apply to us but it was a wonderful read with lots of insight. If your family has had any issues with finance or finance communication, this will be great for you. If you think you're the only one who's dug themselves in a whole - this will be awesome for you.

I would consider myself fairly financially stable so many of the ideas in this book were not new to me. Still I was surprised that this book would make such a difference. Chapters 6 and 7 deal solely with learning to love and treat your spouse in a way that uplifts them. I had never equated that with financial stability. This is a very well rounded manual for more than just financial success.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I find any of her information easy to understand and nothing in her "tone" is judgmental. She also have very good tips on her website. Everything from making your own washing powder to bank accounts.
