When Josh Harris wrote I Kissed Dating Goodbye, he had good intentions.
He was reacting against the casual, recreational, aimless dating that had come to dominate the American landscape. But, as we are so prone to do, we took good principles and distorted them and distilled them into a series of unhelpful/legalistic practices.
Finances are the second-highest cause of divorce, topped only by communication.
Your thoughts on money and your spending habits need to be on a level similar to those of your love interest.
Studying what the Bible has to say about money can be a great opportunity to determine whether your finances are compatible.
