Episode 6: How Our Money Personalities Affect Our Marriage

We are learning all about our money personalities or as some like to call it, our money types. Let's get into some definitions. A money personality, as defined by Olivia Mellan, a clinical psychologist specializing in relationship and money issues, states that "money personalities" explain how we relate to money. She also believes that these personalities are usually fueled by factors like our internal beliefs, formed by your childhood experiences, the community you grew up in and the habits of those around you. Bear in mind that each type has both good qualities and shortcomings, and that most people are in fact a combination of types. Also keep in mind that we usually are a combination of a few and that your money type may change depending on your current situation. Our job as Christian couples is to sharpen areas in our money personality and in our spouse as well as buff away the parts that are not conclusive to winning with money. Which is why this episode is so important. So much of how we relate to money and as result how we spend, give, save and engage predates our marriages. The more we learn how we individually relate to money, the better we can use our strengths to work with our spouses to slay our money goals. In this week's episode lets learn how three money types, shape our financial outlook shapes how we interact with money so that we can learn how to be better stewards, understand our spouses better and as a result work together towards our shared and individual goals.
