Study after study shows that money is one of the top causes of fights in marriages, divorce, and general life stress. It’s no wonder. When you meet that someone special, what do your friends ask you? They ask if you are emotionally, physically, and spiritually compatible. However, when was the last time you heard someone ask if you were financially compatible? Probably never. Yet financial compatibility is one of the greatest predictors of whether or not your relationship will survive over the long-term. The goal of GET FINANCIALLY NAKED is to highlight this proverbial pink elephant in the room. You may think that marital bliss means money doesn’t matter. Think again.
This inspiring, action-oriented guide helps young women in committed relationships understand and manage their money matters. Complete with charts, graphs, case studies, and tip-based advice, this succinct, straightforward book speaks to worried women in the same way that made On My Own Two Feet a time-tested success. Accessible and easy to follow, the three-part process presented in this book teaches you how to:
- Accurately interpret your current financial condition
- Become truly involved in the costs of the couple
- Move forward using the “five power steps to financial success”
