Over 90 percent of couples experience some level of tension around money. In fact, money issues are the number one stressor in relationships. So many books try to fix the surface problems, such as how to budget and what to prioritize when it comes to finances, but the issues go much deeper than just a simple spreadsheet.
How do men and women view money differently? What do most couples fight about? How can they get on the same page? What questions should men/women ask their significant others before marriage? There are emotional and spiritual components to finances that most couples ignore. How can you agree on a budget if you disagree with each other on the basic purpose of money?
Thriving in Love and Money is based on original research Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn have conducted to get to the heart of these issues. And just as they did with their bestselling books For Women Only and For Men Only, they will use this research to provide the answers and insights you need to break the tension and provide the unity you’re looking for. Let this book deepen your understanding of each other, leading to clear communication, peace as a couple, and better financial decision-making.

Thriving in Love & Money is a great book to have for all couples. Eventually, things like money, yourself, and the relationship you’re in will change. Sometimes with change, it can bring issues that are hard to navigate through alone. Inside this nonfiction self-help guide, both Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn walk readers, like myself, through each topic. Their writing makes it feel less like a lecture and more like an informative step-by-step ladder. I liked how well-researched this book’s topics were done. Reading through it, I can tell a lot of work went through in making it to its finally form. Another reason why I enjoyed reading this book, was the examples they brought into each topic they discussed. I found myself able to relate to their story samples and understand what was being demonstrated. Overall, this is a great book that all couples should be gifted with in life.
