Think you can avoid money fights by not talking about it? Learn and use these conversation starters to develop financial intimacy, get on the same page with money, and have an extraordinary marriage! 

 

Financial Intimacy and Marriage

Normally people associate intimacy with physical or emotional, but a long-lasting marriage takes more.

You two can connect with intellectual activities, spiritual moral values, having fun and relaxing, and yes, financial intimacy.

If you been listening to the show for a bit, you know that the money itself is usually not the issue, but a symptom. To a degree, once the bills are paid, how we spend or use money is a reflection of our priorities.

It's all connected.
And we neglect or ignore talking and working through things, our marriage can suffer.

What if you've been married for some time, can you turn things around? Not only fix your finances but become more open as a couple.

Fortunately, Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo are on the show to share their story and help make things easier. They're the dynamic duo behind One Extraordinary Marriage where they explore developing a stronger marriage.

In this episode we get into:

  • the challenges Tony and Alisa faced with debt
  • how they started those conversations about money
  • creating a system with their family finances they're both happy with

Hope you enjoy!

Want to retire early, but your spouse isn't ready? Learn how Jamila and her husband got on the same page with financial independence and saved over $80,000 last year! 

Getting on the Same Page with Financial Independence

You're making a good income, but... you're not getting anywhere. It's frustrating.

Somehow, though, maybe through this podcast, some personal finance sites, or books, you've started running the numbers.

While there would certainly need to be some changes, you can see a path forward. You can get out of debt, save more, and invest towards retirement. Maybe even retire early.

But there's just one problem.

It's not just about you. You're in this with your spouse. And you're not quite sure how to get them on board.

As you heard at the top, today's guest Journey to Launch founder Jamila has been down this path.

In this episode, we get into:

  • how she and her husband first handled their money and paid down debt
  • discovering financial independence and winning him over
  • how they work together with money and created a system that respects both their styles

Hope you enjoy!
