Mortgage Before Marriage Book

How Buying A Home Could Save Your Marriage

The fairy tales lied. Love isn’t everything.

Love rarely survives long term without financial stability. More, love can’t survive when one or both partners is a financial liability rather than an asset. This imbalance is why money is cited as one of the top reasons for divorce – and why over 20 percent of women today are in a bad relationship they can’t afford to get out of.

The Mortgage Before Marriage book offers a step-by-step approach to change your mindset around money and its role in marriage, get your real estate portfolio started, and secure your financial future before you say, “I do.”

Common Marriage Myths

When a woman's fed up, she walks away from the relationship

Fact: 1 in 5 people report staying in a relationship due to financial concerns, the majority of whom were women.

Married people handle money together

Fact: Most people admit that money is a big stressor for them, but the majority of couples find it easier to talk about sex or death than finances.

Money doesn't matter. It's about how much we love each other

Fact: The average marriage for non-homeowners lasts 2-5 years. For homeowners, that average rises to 17 years! Of course, relationships fail for many reasons, but financial stress is a definite burden on love. Ownership can help sustain a stronger bond.

Common Mortgage Myths

You should buy your first home AFTER graduating college

Fact: Being a student doesn’t disqualify you for a mortgage, and in many cases, your mortgage may be less expensive than on-campus student housing. After graduation, you can keep your home and use it as a rental property for long-term income.

Single men are more likely to own a home than single women

Fact: Single women are more likely to own a home than single men.

Having multiple homes (and multiple mortgages) is risky.

Fact: While there are risks with any investment, real estate returns are often higher and less volatile than the stock market. A property is a tangible asset that typically grows over time and allows you to benefit from market appreciation, equity, and rental income.
