About The 5 Money Personalities (as taken from the authors website)
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?

I received this book in exchange for my thoughtful review. I have to be honest, though my husband
and I don't generally argue about money we do have two vastly different opinions about money,
savings, spending and enjoying money. In fact we have ample discussions about our money
differences with close friends of ours, I like to save and feel secure, and my husband likes to enjoy his
money earned. I get and understand his point of view. In fact, I've come to adapt to that view at times.
But there has to be a "limit" to the fun and enjoyment, and it can't only be one side enjoying.
An argument for another day.I can't honestly give you my full review on the book, because if you
follow it accordingly, it takes more than the time I've had it in my possession.
What I will tell you is that the book encourages that you take your time, work and read together,
communicate at the end of each chapter by the "Make it Happen" exercise that will reinforce what
you have read. Keeping an honest open dialogue with your partner is key.Life has a way to making us
forget our dreams, hopes, wishes, we limit ourselves, and never really end up "Making it happen"...
Not this year, not in 2013! This book is not about creating a budget or a financial plan,
its about helping couples dream together again!
Chapter one was really an introduction, it shared the reasons behind the book, what you will learn
from the book (or what they hope you'll learn), really just opening your eyes and getting you to
realize that financial happiness is possible with your spouse. Plus it gives you examples of real life
stories of couples they've counseled, how their lives have been changed and impacted by life and

telling each other one thing the other person might now know about you, even after years of
