Book Description

6 Dec 2007

The only book specially written to help you and your partner manage your finances – together.Getting married or moving in with a partner is an exciting and meaningful stage in any relationship. But often, in all the excitement and planning, money and financial issues can get lost, buried or simply ignored. Managing your money in a partnership is critically important and careful control of it will help both of you cope through many situations and problems.

You’re likely to take on joint financial commitments, and this book guides you through all the twists and turns in the financial maze and clearly explains how you can maximise the rewards and minimise the risks involved in joining finances.

Financial Bliss will encourage you and your partner to be open and honest about money and your expectations around it. You’ll discover how you and your partner can jointly maximise your financial assets and discover if, financially at least, you are compatible. You’ll discover how discussing your finances with each other can be hugely rewarding as you support each other and build your dreams together.

Find out how the money in your partnership is viewed by the law, how pre-nuptial agreements work, how you can benefit financially from a marriage or civil partnership and how to protect your individual and joint assets.

Financial Bliss will also help you plan financially for some of life’s milestones, both good and bad: getting married; having a baby; buying a house; losing a job; illness and incapacity. Find out all about wills, how they are probably the most important document you will sign in your life and how vital they are in protecting the financial future of both your partner and your children. An annual ‘Money MOT’ will help you ascertain if things are moving in the right direction and if your joint finances are still working in both your best interests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blissfully Simple 25 Mar 2008
Having worked as a financial adviser for many years and having read many books that attempt to help the reader get on top of their finances this books rates as one of the best. It provides a simple no-nonsense reference point for couples who want to do no more than ensure their finances are in order. In particular chapter 4, `The road to financial bliss', is a must read for couples who have decided that their financial future is together and want to know how to get started. For those who find personal finance a dry subject this is a book that will allow them to be on top of their money without becoming immersed in financial jargon.

At last! A book that explains all financial aspects of life, in a simple and easy to understand language. Apart from giving you the facts, it also makes you question decisions you've made or are about to make. It doesn't preach or patronise, but offers alternative ways of thinking about things. Sarah's style is very reassuring, friendly, honest and unbiased. She answers all those questions on issues that no one ever taught you about.

Money can be a really stressful part of a relationship, but there are so many suggestions, tips and advice in this book that help make it so much easier to deal with. Within 15minutes of reading, I'd worked out how we could save 70 a month. A book that doesn't make finance scarey and encourages you to be in control of your personal situation.

I found this book very well organised and comprehensive. I would certainly recommend it. It's very accessible in the way that it speaks to you. My husband and I have already implemented some of the suggestions and it's motived us made us talk more openly about money.
