What Husbands Wish Their Wives Knew About Money
This book is a mix of scripture and financial advice. For the most part, the author assumes that the woman is clueless about the intricacies of money. This book is to help the husband explain the big bad world of money management. There are lots of stories sprinkled throughout the book on women being trapped by credit. (I guess the men are more immune to the the call of credit.)
The couples profiled have a variety of problems: wife wants to live way above the family’s means, the husband is a miser with the funds, and wife resents him. A husband is somewhat “shamed” for making his wife take a job typing in her spare time. Good husbands don’t do that. The wife, in another scenario, “borrows” from her father. This is bad too. Her husband needs to step up. The couples are headed for trouble unless they start taking budgeting seriously. For the most part, the wives are the problem. They just don’t understand that they can’t buy everything and need to stand strong against evil credit.
Bottom line: Jesus loves budgets.
