My husband and I are facilitating a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University. It’s been great for all kinds of reasons when it comes to being a couple. We have a weekly “date.” We are learning together. We actually made a budget together and are both still standing and breathing. We are more of a team when it comes to finances. We’re addressing one of the biggies when it comes to marital stresses.
I highly encourage y’all to consider attending an FPU, but if you don’t have the time or opportunity, you can do something similar and receive some of the same benefits. Find a class in your area about a subject that you find interesting. Attend together. Learn together. Have something in common and look for ways to be a team.
If you can’t find anything in your area, gather your friends and ask them if they would like to have a “reading and discussion” group. What interests y’all? What do you need to learn? You could read a marriage book, a parenting book, a book about praying for your community or a study on a book of the Bible. Just read a chapter each week and discuss it when you gather. A number of books even include a study guide.
