LESSON INTRODUCTION: Money is the major means of catering for our everyday needs and it is capable of meeting virtually all physical needs. One major reason couples get divorced is financial disagreement. This is very difficult to believe until one begins to feel the pool of financial tensions in the home. Usually, the conflict may not appear to be directly about money but a closer look would reveal that the fight is about priorities, values, dreams, and trusts which are all linked with finances. The Bible caution us about our attitude towards money. 1 Timothy 6:10



God owns all riches (Hag.2:8). It is His desire that His children prosper (3Jn.2; Ps.1:3). He gives us the power to get wealth (Deut.8:18; Isa.45:3). Money in marriage should not be individually owned. Whatever God has joined together, money should not separate (Matt.19:4-6; Eph.5:29-32). Whatever the husband earns belongs to the wife. Likewise, what the wife has belongs to the husband. This is because both husband and wife are one flesh (Eph.5:31; Gen.2:24). In marriage, the financial policy or principle should be entirely different from when one is single. There are new financial demands apart from providing for two instead of one. One’s order of priority in terms of needs would change. Therefore, in Christian marriage, money should no longer be YOURS AND MINE BUT OURS.

Financial success in marriage demands honesty and total trust between the two spouses (1Cor.13:7). There should be no lies about income and expenses (Col.3:9) or withholding of spending information. For some, shared bank account and pay cheque remove doubt and encourages mutual trust. For others, separate accounts with openness and sincerity, works (Matt.19:5-6). What is important, irrespective of the class of account couples decide to adopt, is to relate with one another in honesty, trust and understanding.

Money, if rightly handled and managed in marriage, will act as a lubricant to the overall success of the marriage. However, the mishandling or mismanagement of money which is a principal evil (1Tim.6:10), will wreck the home and could be the root of a broken marriage.
