The last thing most young lovers want to do together is trade information about their bank accounts and financial aspirations. This insight is the truth at the heart of this gentle and informative compendium of advice on pecuniary matters. Like Suze Orman, who has made a career of understanding the psychology of money, Opdyke considers how personal relationships and the obligations that attend them develop over time. Starting with the question of dual versus shared accounts and digressing into such topics as appropriate allowances for children, Opdyke sympathetically considers the myriad small decisions we make about money from courtship through retirement. Robert O'Keefe's narration is soft-spoken, bringing to mind an image of Fred Rogers as financial guru. This collection will most likely require re-listening as one progresses through life.
