Financial Advice for young couples part 1

I am a huge fan of Focus on the Family's daily broadcasts. This time around, finance experts Scott and Bethany Palmer offer young couples practical advice for establishing sound financial principles for their marriage. (Part 1 of 2)

Stay tuned for part two of this video.  In the meantime, if you like what was said here, you can check out the books made by Scott and Bethany Palmer.  They're chock full of excellent financial advice for young couples and older couples alike (although it's better to have a great start, of course).

Anyway, the books made by the Palmers are:

First Comes Love, Then Comes Money Here’s the book description:

The number one cause for divorce is financial infidelity. Now "The Money Couple" reveals the missing ingredient needed before any financial program or plan can work: healthy financial communication. This book tells you how to:

•    Diagnose your level of financial infidelity
•    Identify your individual Money Personality
•    Master the Money Huddle and the Money Dump
•    Achieve financial goals once and for all

First Comes Love, Then Comes Money is available in Kindle, paperback (for a bargain price, too), and audio.

Their other book is Cents and Sensibility.  Here’s the book description:

Conflicts about money are often the key source of arguments between couples. That's because most of the time, spouses look at financial matters very differently. One might be a "saver" while the other is a "spender." But neither type is necessarily "right" in the way they choose to handle family funds.

This is a guidebook to help married and engaged couples build (or rebuild) their relationship by working together on financial issues. With God's principles at work, there is hope for arriving at financial balance! Couples learn to understand and respect each other, and by communicating more effectively, can begin the journey to financial harmony—and joy!

This book is available only on paperback.
