This book gives couples the perfect excuse to break the silence and start talking about… money! Staying on top of your finances when you're single can be tough enough - add another person to the mix and it can seem downright daunting. Even if you've got your own finances in order, there are inevitable money issues that come up when you're part of a couple, not just because one of you may be in better shape financially than the other, but because you may each have very different perspectives on money and how to manage it. The principles the Cookies set out in their first book about the basics of life planning and investing can work for couples, too, and this guide offers simple techniques that will help readers with everything from dealing with "money baggage" to getting out of debt to planning for retirement. Again they draw practical advice and meaty anecdotes from their own financial escapades, as well as readers' queries and the personal experiences of five focus couples. From the Hardcover edition.

    I really wanted a book that would talk about how to become more compatible in terms of financial planning. This book was much more about how to spend and invest a joint income. There were two quizzes about your attitudes about money and spending, and lots of lecturing about the importance of honesty (duh). But not a lot of advice about resolution or mutual understanding... except, "Don't schedule this talk during sports finals." Seriously!

Then, it was just "once you and your partner decide whatever, take a vacation in Hawaii!" This book is a lot about helping people who are middle class & well off manage their money if they are frittering it away on stupid crap, but their money saving suggestions are still aimed at a lifestyle that I cannot afford. & it was just overwhelmingly heteronormative considering its publication date. I rarely read books of this sort & am totally unsure why I tried this one.

    Some good tips here, especially for the truly budget-clueless, but overall not a book that did much for me given how widely my perspective differs from the authors'.
