None of the millions of poems and songs speak of matters financial when it comes to love and marriage. Or, if they do, the tone isn’t serious. But while love and marriage may go together like a horse and carriage, a happy and healthy marriage relies upon some pretty basic grown-up conversations that most adults prefer to avoid. “I love you honey, should we share a chequing account” doesn’t have that delightful romantic ring. But it’s one of the conversations necessary to build an enduring and successful relationship. In Love and Money, Wallace Howick provides the necessary tools to begin and hold the discussions that will give any relationship a solid financial basis.
