The book examines the intersection of love and money. The book is a modest attempt to elevate the conversations normally had between couples about money so that talking about money becomes as mundane as deciding what to eat for dinner.
What people are saying about Financial Intimacy:
Timmons has created a road map for some very rough terrain. It’s usually not a lack of money that causes strife in a relationship; it’s the lack of financial literacy and emotional resources to communicate properly that can do a couple in. Financial Intimacy goes beyond telling couples how to manage their debt and invest for the future; it shows couples how to make those conversations routine and painless.
-Beverly Goodman, Senior Editor, SmartMoney: The Wall Street Journal Magazine
Financial Intimacy should be required reading…. There are all kinds of books on marriage and relationships,…. but I’ve never seen one that so brilliantly deals with creating healthy financial intimacy for couples.
