Trust me, Prince Charming won’t seem so enchanting when he’s messing up the checkbook and the two of you are being hit with bounced-check fees every month. When it comes to your money and your man, you will not live rich if you don’t find a way to communicate honestly about your financial differences. You will not live rich if you don’t learn to compromise. And you will not live rich if you don’t set common financial goals. Follow the three Cs and you will be able to trust your man with your heart and your money.

“Money may not be able to buy you love, but conflicts about it can certainly bankrupt your relationship.”–Michelle SingletaryHere at last is the lowdown on how to manage your finances with the man in your life. Money is the #1 problem couples fight about, says beloved Washington Post financial columnist Michelle Singletary. Acknowledging that most fights about money are usually about something else–like feelings of fear or resentment–Singletary stresses the value of open dialogue. In her trademark no-holds-barred style, she shows us how to handle the entire range of financial issues couples face–from splitting the dinner bill when dating to planning for retirement together after years of marriage. Singletary speaks to the hearts of women as they try to successfully merge their money and future security with those of their man. Acknowledging the emotional weight of shared investments, she brings her own experience as a wife and mother to the table and doles out advice in a voice that, while encouraging and rational, is never less than frank on tough topics. From sizing up a potential mate’s financial responsibility (or lack thereof) to figuring out how best to share bank accounts and expenses once you’ve made the leap, to determining how to teach your children about money, Your Money and Your Man focuses on the undeniable role that finance plays in every stage of a long-term relationship. Including typical questions from readers of her syndicated column and advice from one of the savviest financial experts she has ever known–her grandmother–Singletary shows women that they can live happily ever after with Prince Charming, even if he doesn’t have a royal bank account!

Great book. Very informational

Michelle Singletary has a wonderful instructive book that delivers a message that an uncle's rant can't deliver. I would give it to young men, but for many of them the title does not appeal to them.

Great book

I bought this book, with the interest of hearing the author's thoughts on being financially responsible. I was quite excited to learn some common-sense approaches to handling my money well. However, I returned the book after stumbling across numerous references to ultra-conservative organizations, and reading the author's tirade about how children should only be raised by both a loving mother and father.

The financial info was decent, at best. But, it was completely eclipsed by the author's thinly-veiled messages about Christianity, the greatness of the church, and how healthy kids can only be raised by both a mother and father. And, that was all within the first 20 pages!

What does any of that have to do with financial tips and advice?!

Michelle Singletary is a columnist for The Washington Post. She started "The Color of Money" column in March 1997. In 2003, she published her first book, 7 Money Mantras For A Richer Life: How To Live Well With The Money You Have. The paperback of the book was retitled, Spend Well, Live Rich. Her second book, Your Money and Your Man: How You and Prince Charming Can Spend Well and Live Rich, was released Jan. 31, 2006, both published by Random House.

As always, I found Michelle Singletary's writing style pleasant to read and easy to understand. If the reader has little or no prior knowledge of finances, especially with regards to marriage, than this might be a good first start. However, if the reader already has a library of basic financial books, this one is a little redundant.

In this her third book, she divided her advice into sections that help at different stages: dating, marriage, when children arrive, divorce)--and learning to talk about money with someone you intend to marry--and finding your "money compatibility." Fighting over money is still the number one problem in most marriages.

I did find her decade-by-decade list of money milestones to be very interesting and useful. Be aware that this book is filled with Bible quotes and is very conservative. For instance, Singletary suggests that having separate bank accounts is leaving a way out of marriage--instead of simply stating the pros and cons of separate vs. combined incomes.

This is a wide-ranging book, covering everything from dating, planning the wedding, marriage, children, straight through to divorce or separation. Unfortunately, there was nothing in this book that I hadn't read in several other books, with the exception of the money milestones, which while not new, were put together in an interesting way.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a basic book of finances for those with a conservative, religious point-of-view who are considering or newly married, this book might be helpful. If, however, you have already read several basic finance books, this book might not have much that is new.

Armchair Interview says: If you've read no other book about money and relationships, this has good info for you.

I sort of have a hobby of reading personal finance books and I have read plenty of them. There's even one out there on zen and personal finance. But Michelle's advice, while it is basic, is what a lot of people need. She is practical and aware of the financial missteps that all too many people make, especially those young and just starting out. No, this isn't Ben Graham's book or anything written by or about Warren Buffett. What it is is good, basic advice on money management so people can eventually have the funds to invest in the stock market and maybe then start reading Ben Graham. I gave this book to my daughter who is not very sensible yet about money, and Michelle's clear and down to earth way of speaking seemed to finally get through to her, where I had been unsuccessful.

If you're a right wing Christian, and a money novice, you'll probably love this book. However, I wish I'd spent my money on a different couples' finance book.

Don't be fooled by the hip title and cool cover. There are a few nuggets of decent financial advice in here, but you have to wade through Singletary's Dark Ages social-conservative propaganda and Bible verses to get to it, and it's really annoying if you're not so inclined.

Even more troublesome is the fact that some of her money advice seems to be based on her right-wing "values" rather than on sound financial reasoning. (For example, I learned from Michelle's book that couples who maintain separate checking accounts are just keeping open an easy "out" for a future divorce. Thanks, Michelle, for your opinion, but I'd prefer to know the financial and logistical pros and cons of separate or joined or partially joined finances.)
This book is a fine introduction to personal finance. If you already know the basics, then this probably isn't for you. The author lost me when she starting quoting the Bible though. If you are a conservative Christian, run, don't walk to pick up this book that I found at Walmart (how telling). If you don't want someone moralizing to you about marriage in a finance book, maybe you should look elsewhere.
