Couples and Money
They say money can’t buy love but it can sure complicate it! Numerous studies have shown that money is the No. 1 reason why couples argue — and many of the recently divorced say those battles were the main reason why they untied the knot – whether it’s too little of it, too much of it, who pays for what, or just different attitudes towards it! So – how can you learn to manage money together? How can you turn one of the greatest causes of marital misunderstanding into something that draws you closer together and helps you accomplish your joint purpose?

THE COURSE MODULES
1. Different Strokes
One of the biggest causes of disagreements about money is that our different families taught us to value money differently. This module will help you assess what values you learnt about money from your families of origin and help you to agree on what common values you want to have for your family
2. Different Eyes
The second big cause of money disagreements is that couples fail to see how their different temperaments cause them to approach money differently. This module will show you how your temperament causes you to be a loner, hoarder, spender, avoider etc. Once you understand these money traps, you can work together to ensure your money becomes a source of freedom, not slavery!
3. Real Talk
We all know that it’s important for couples to talk about money. But what most couples struggle with is how to talk about money. In this module, we help you develop communication skills that will help you have great conversations not just about money but about everything else in your marriage!
4. Understanding The Why Of Money
Most couples want to learn the ‘how’ of money. They think that if they just could just get more money, then they would solve all their problems. The biggest problem however is not ‘how’ but ‘why.’ If you understand the why of money, money won’t strain your marriage but will actually bring you closer together!
5. Your Money Journey
At each stage of your marriage, there are important goals you need to agree on. We profile the different stages and the goals you should be working on together at each stage. The best day to plant an oak was twenty years ago . . . the next best day is today.
