The Marriage Challenge: A Finance Guide for Married Couples by Art Rainer book review


Synopsis (as taken from GoodReads)

God has a plan for your marriage and your money. It starts with a challenge. Will you accept?

For many couples, the collision of marriage and money is the beginning of relational havoc. But does it have to be this way?

What if the collision of marriage and money no longer tore couples apart but brought them together? What if money was no longer a topic to argue about but a topic around which couples rallied? What if the collision of marriage and money actually helped couples find contentment and purpose?

In The Marriage Challenge: A Finance Guide for Married Couples, financial expert and author of The Money Challenge Art Rainer takes you on a journey to a financially healthy marriage. Get started on the right foot, or get back on the right track, by accepting the challenge and realizing God’s design for money and marriage.


What an intuitive book! I really wish I had gotten my hand son this earlier in my marriage! I really feel like it could have helped quicker. I enjoy how this book was broken down into smaller lessons and shows us how to take things step by step.

In marriage most arguments stem form money. Whether the argument itself is about money or because we are stressed over money, it is the root most of the time. This book breaks down how to become better financial and manage things as partners. As it should be. in marriage when you say I Do you become one, not separate.

One key factor i noticed is that this book still encourages us to give to God not just him but in life as well. We become selfish as humans and forget that at the end of the day, God asks us to give to him and others. What I think I’ve noticed is that in life we may say we are struggling but we don;t take into account of how there are others that do and always will have it worse than what we do.

The end of chapter challenges were great. it was refreshing to get new ideas and ways you and your partner can work together to change your finances. it’s not asking each person to do it solo but rather this book is for couples. The books entirety was well laid out.

This was a wonderful, thought provoking read that challenges not just ourselves but humans as a couple as well. Definitely would think this could benefit for bible studies and churches for groups. Would love to see this book around more!
