Finances can be draining.
- Running out of money before payday
- Arguing about spending
- Bills are piling up
- Can we save for a rainy day?
- Can we put aside money for a night or weekend out?
- Are we ever going to get out of debt?
It’s a lot. But it’s helped that I’ve learned how to talk to my spouse about finances. Now, we share our thoughts and our feelings about our financial lifestyle. We talk about making financial decisions together. We save up and purchase items together. We also took a Dave Ramsey class together, and learned better ways to budget and pay off our debts.
Our original Marriage Encounter Experience helped me to be open and be vulnerable enough to share my true feelings about finances with my spouse, Dan, and I also learned about listening to his feelings about finances.
