Share Your Life, Share Your Money

I had the privilege this week of being at Dave Ramsey’s campus and studio, where Dave and his daughter, Rachel Cruze, interviewed my husband about our book The Holistic You. Towards the end of the conversation, Dave mentioned that the very personable Rachel only receives intense pushback, and even hostility, when it comes to one topic. That is when she stresses on air that married couples should share bank accounts and finances.

Hearing that this idea is increasingly controversial reminded me of a Musing I wrote in September, 2019: Does Financial Independence Sound Appealing? Being on the road, I did not get a chance to write a new Musing, but I hope you enjoy re-reading this one as much as I did.

This Musing is dedicated in memory of Laurie Verdi, age 24, who was murdered by Hamas terrorists on October 7, 2023 while attending the Supernova music festival. Laurie’s boyfriend was knocked unconscious by a grenade and when he came to, he discovered her body outside the shelter to which they had fled when the attack began.

And with prayers for the safe return of Alon Ohel, along with the remaining hostages. Alon, a talented musician, was captured by terrorists while attending the Supernova music festival.
