Book Review - The 5 Money Personalities
The hidden key to a healthy relationship is not just managing money but understanding how the other approaches money.
Every couple argues about money. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for 40 years or dating for 4 months, money touches every decision you make as a couple—from the $5 cup of coffee to the $50,000 car. And when the two of you don’t see eye-to-eye on how much to spend or how much to save, that’s when arguments turn into ugly toxic fights that leave both persons feeling hurt and angry. It’s why money has become the #1 cause of divorce in the U.S. Obviously, something needs to change. The reason this crisis has not been addressed is because it has never been identified, defined, or given a name. Scott and Bethany Palmer, aka “The Money Couple,” have identified and defined this problem and offer concrete solutions to fix it.
Once you know your Money Personality, you can get to the root of money arguments and start really working together. You’ll discover what has an impact on your loved one’s money decisions, and you’ll learn how to talk about money in a way that’s actually fun! You’ll figure out how to put an end to money secrets and lies once and for all.
It’s not just about money management, and it’s definitely not just about overcoming debt. It is a whole new way of living that will change everything in your relationship. Tens of thousands have already been transformed. Are you ready?
My Take on the Book
Most would say that money issues can be the one issue that can truly cause ultimate strife in a relationship. I know that for my wife and I we have had our concerns about money issues in our years of marriage, and I have to say that this book is one that I wish that we would have had at the beginning of our marriage as I was very impressed to learn about the different money personalities that each of us possess. The five Money Personalities are: Saver, Spender, Risk Taker, Security Seeker and Flyer and I could easily see my wife and my personalities within these. I have to say that each of these areas were ones that opened my eyes, as I came to find that by knowing each of these areas I came to know my own wife better. This book allowed my wife and I to have some very good conversations with each other about what we learned and I now can see that this will allow us to make some much better decisions together in the future based on what we learned.
