At some point in every relationship couples run up against financial quandaries that neither imagined while dating. Some will be relatively small, such as worrying over a mate's bad credit history; some will be huge; such as a spouse taking financial control in a marriage of supposed equals. Too often with money, couples face two choices: fight and risk making the situation worse, or keep quiet and risk making the situation worse. "Financially Ever After" offers a third option: family financial fluency - the insight, knowledge and vocabulary couples need to communicate effectively about their money and their feelings about it. Opdyke offers up dozens of real-life scenarios between couples, with actual scripts and suggestions of how to broach touchy subjects with your significant other.
