Lesson 3: Teamwork

And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13

You need to be on the same page when it comes to your money.

If you’re married or getting married, then you need to be on the same team and in each other’s corner. Of course, this doesn’t happen overnight. The purpose of this lesson is to help you and your partner talk about money and understand where you are both coming from.

If you are single, go through this whole lesson and every teamwork exercise anyway! They are designed for self-discovery, and even though everything won’t apply to you, you will still learn a whole lot about yourself and the relationship you should have with money.

Special Notes

  1. Make sure to take your time with the teamwork exercises. They are here to help you build a stronger relationship with your spouse, as well as to understand yourself better. Don’t rush through them; use them to build a better marriage.
