Scraps of Life Book Club Review:
When my husband and I went through pre-martial counseling with our Pastor, he told us that money is one of the number one causes of fights with couples. We've been married 18 years and I'm still waiting for the big fight! No joke. We have at time, had a budget and other times didn't have one but wished that we did. We went through periods where he payed all the bills or I payed all the bills. We just always seemed to work together to get it done.
The book, Money & Marriage is a great handbook for those who are going to get married or are already married. We got married toward the end of our College years so we owed money and had some coming in. There was a lot in the book that I would not have known when I was a young twenty something bride.
Just like any issue, the money thing can make or break your relationship if you put it before Christ in your marriage. This book gives tips and advise on how not to let money break the bank and your relationship.
