Looking to grow your marriage and money this year?
When I started Couple Money almost 10 years ago, there weren't too many resources out there focused for married couples.
My husband and I were in $35,000 of debt and while we agreed we needed to get rid of it, we went back and forth on the how.
Most of the sites had fantastic information on the mechanics of finances – getting out of debt, saving more, and investing for retirement, but I couldn't find one that was dedicated to helping spouses work together on finances.
Fast forward and I am happy to say there are some wonderful sites, podcasts, and communities committed to helping couples get on the same page with their finances and more.
Here I've updated my list and I'm sharing my favorites (check out below!).
Marriage and Money
I started Couple Money because I wanted to have a safe space to discuss not only finances like how to get out of debt, invest smarter, and build wealth, but also the very deeply personal part of marriage.
- how do you create a budget that both of you are happy with,
- should you loan money to your in-laws,
- deciding if one of you can stay or work from home with the kids.
Money isn't the most important thing, but it can really mess up a marriage.
When I began, there weren't many places that dove into both sides.
oday, though, there's a thriving community and network focused on helping you two win with money.
I'm sharing my current favorites on today's podcast.
Hope you enjoy!
