Finances and the newlyweds


When my hubby and I just got married we were not the least bit concerned with our finances. We, so, should have been. Finances are a major factor in determining if you will stay married or not. After a few years of marriage my partner and I took a class offered by our church that had to deal with our finances. This was the best decision we ever made.

This class taught us everything we needed to know about paying off debt, saving, insurance, wills and all things that are important in your financial life. I am proud to say that the only debt we have now is our home and our medical bills. We agree on how our finances are to be run and what to spend our money on. That one class was the best money we ever spent.

Yes, that class cost us…#100.00 (I think). What class was it? It was Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace. This was back before Dave was the big deal he is today. At that time when our church did that class Dave came to our church and preached on tithing and then gave us our diplomas when we finished the course. I had no idea what I needed as far as insurance, etc.

If you are thinking about getting married do yourself a favor and take this class together. It’s the best investment you can give your marriage.
