The national best selling book, Smart Couples Finish Rich, teaches couples of all ages how to work together on their finances as a team. Smart Couples Finish Rich has the same easy-to-read style and action-oriented format that made Smart Women Finish Rich a bestseller.
In this book, David teaches that couples that plan together financially stay together. Unfortunately, most couples spend more time planning vacations than planning their finances during their entire marriage. As a result, most couples end up with little or no savings, and many end up divorced due to the stress of financial burdens and debt. Having worked one-on-one with hundreds of couples as a financial advisor and having spoken to thousands in his seminars, David shares in this new book exactly what you can do to become a couple that truly lives a rich life.
