Easy and Fun Conversation Starters


We talk about finances and how to get better with them as a couple every week, but it's only part of the equation. Marriage also need healthy, meaningful, and productive conversations.

What you talk about and how to speak with one another is important. Since many of you are enjoying your time off this weekend by hanging out with family or friends, I wanted to mix it up.
