In this episode of the Beyond Your Wedding Day Podcast,we continue our discussion on the book Stripped Down by Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo from oneextraordinarymarriage.com. We discuss chapter 5 entitled “Money Matters.”
We discuss how we still did our Thrive90 Fitness Program while we were on vacation.
A nice, relaxing vacation was great for our 90 Days of Sex Challenge. We do have a slight debate going on, however. Should we count days we can’t have sex because of NFP “against us” or not. Mandy says we should not, Mike says we should. Let us know in the comments what you think.
-We discuss our crazy adventure coming back from vacation.
-It included a car breakdown in the suburbs of Chicago.
-We used to argue all of the time when we traveled.
-Now, with GPS, we rarely do.
-Having a budget is like a GPS for your money, it can take away your money fights!
-Financial stress is an intimacy killer
-Doing a budget BEFORE the month begins will really help reduce any money fights or tension
-There should never be secrets in your marriage, and that includes money secrets
-Often, it takes both of you reading a book about finances together in order to get on the same page and get excited about your future
*getting excited is the key!
