ReadersFavorite review: "Ostapiv’s book should be in every family’s library to consult every time one needs to."

Wouldn’t it be great if money is the one thing you never argue about?

Home Finances for Couples is a great help for a partner in a relationship, who wants to manage the family finances efficiently, move toward meeting the shared financial goals and live in financial peace with no money issues. Ideally, both partners should read it together, but even one is enough to make a difference.

Home Finances for Couples contains 10 main chapters along with interviews, practical exercises, links to the best American and Canadian personal finance bloggers, visual illustrations and graphs. It was inspired by Dave Ramsey’s book “Total Money Makeover”, but it also adds the valuable relationship advice, particularly for young couples, engaged and newlyweds.

It might be a truly intelligent engagement or wedding gift for the relationship ;)

from the Author:

“A fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”

Given my 10 years of experience in corporate finance, five years in personal finance and an MBA, you would expect my wife and me to have a perfect money management system. However, during two years of marriage, there was a lot of miscommunication in discussing our money issues. For me, Home Finances for Couples offers a hope that, although we made some mistakes, it’s not too late in our relationship.

I’ve been reading around 50 American and Canadian personal finance blogs over several months to extend my knowledge and understand the money issues arising in modern type of long-term relationships. Bloggers advise on personal wealth management, smart financial decisions, money and relationships, family budget, student loans, spending habits, savings, being frugal, investing, paying debt off, family values, financial freedom and sustainable life. Along with own knowledge and advice, I provided links to top articles from those blogs.

It’s my hope that you, too, can resolve any money problems—step by step—in your long-term relationship with the help of Home Finances for Couples.
Moreover, I will show you how other couples successfully manage their family budget and deal with money issues in their marriage.

My greatest achievement will be the moment when you say to yourself, “Home Finances helped us to…”
