YOU’RE A HEALTHY PLANT
There is very little, if not any, financial infidelity in your relationship—and that’s fantastic!
Whether you’re proud of your money choices or not, you don’t let that get in the way of keeping a healthy, open line of communication with your spouse. You two may not have very many disagreements on this topic, but remember: all it takes is one little money secret to throw your relationship through a loop.
We aren’t saying that to scare you, but even if things are going pretty well right now, it’s always worth identifying and discussing the differences in your individual Money Personalities to prevent anything from occurring in the future. Keep up the good work!
IN SHORT, HERE ARE YOUR GROWTH STEPS:
WASH THE ROOTS
CONTINUE HAVING CONVERSATIONS
REPLANT YOUR LOVE
CONSIDER A MARRIAGE CONFERENCE
OR A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR TO
KEEP THINGS HEALTHY
NOW LET’S DIG IN DEEPER AND START TO GROW!
WASH THE ROOTS: CONTINUE HAVING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MONEY
Communication is NOT key; intimate communication is. It’s important to actually be active in the conversation when you’re communicating. It isn’t just a quick, “How was your day?” Instead, ask deeper questions.
Money is one of those personal, touchy subjects that’s hard to talk about. Once you start working through the tough conversations, the ones about money will only come easier!
Communication is like a muscle—the more you do it, the stronger you become. Make sure that you’re working on that muscle often, so you can keep from the temptations of financial infidelity.
REPLANT YOUR LOVE: CONSIDER A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR/CONFERENCE TO KEEP THINGS HEALTHY
Relational tune-ups are a MUST! It’s important to give your relationship the TLC it needs to keep things running smoothly.
It’s just like having a car: to make sure everything is working properly, tune-ups are due after a certain mileage. These “maintenance checks” can come in the form of marriage conferences, marriage counseling, or Bible studies focused on marriage.
Studies indicate that couples who complete a full therapy journey benefit in more ways than one and show significant improvement in their relationship. Don’t let weird therapy myths stop you from recovering your marriage!
