The way you handle your money as a couple is important to the strength of your marriage, as well as your entire family’s future. However, sharing money is one of the hardest things a couple faces, and it continues to be cited as the one of the top reasons behind divorces. It’s hard..but it’s not impossible!

I’m sharing my best advice for getting a reluctant spouse on board with budgeting. I’ll walk you through what helped my husband + I get on the same page with our money, and I’ll also share some words of encouragement for the budgeting nerd spouse AND the free-spirited spouse.

 
 

In this episode, I share about:

  • My best advice for getting a reluctant spouse on board with budgeting

  • Why it’s important to dream together

  • Why it’s important to write down your goals

  • How to show your partner that there is a light at the end of the tunnel

  • Why it can be a good thing that your spending habits are different

  • How to push through and be successful when they are uninterested or unenthusiastic

  • How to divide up each spouse’s spending money

  • Words of encouragement for the budgeting nerd spouse AND the free-spirited spouse

Memorable Quotes:

“Show him that your heart is ultimately for the good of the family.”

“You’ll actually be working towards a purpose, you won’t just be surviving.”
