A Couple’s Guide to Success with Money and Marriage
“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” - Edward Everett Hale
There are a few areas of married life that cause more disagreement, yelling, pouting, and throwing of things than the financial area. One of the most frequent reasons given for divorce today is money fights and sustained financial pressure.
Marriage is about oneness, unity, and teamwork but you don't become a team without putting in the work in various areas. When it comes to money in marriage, you cannot bury your head in the sand. You must do your best not to allow financial pressures to ruin your relationship.
You must have both money management and marriage management. When conflicts arise in marriage, it is not money that is the problem; neither is it marriage; it is the individuals in the relationship that cause the conflict when their values do not line up with each other’s as they have hoped or assumed.
Winning Together is about thinking together, deciding together, and working together - in a marriage. The book is about an encounter that a couple, in financial conflict, had with a Money Coach, a Marriage Counsellor, and some of their close friends. It explains, in a conversational format, how couples can have victory with both money and marriage as they work towards their common vision.
If you are ready for success in both your money and your marriage, this is the book for you. Even if you are single, separated, divorced, or widowed, there is something for you to learn and use in this book.
"... the simple wisdom-nuggets in this book, if applied with sincerity, will work in any situation ..." - Abi Olowosoyo
When we work together; we can win together.
Pastor (Engr.) Andrew & Mrs Otibhor Onobrakpeya wrote:
Niyi painted the beauty of what our differences can bring into the relationship; "they are not there to tear the union apart but to strengthen it - creating a new uniqueness." By introducing people from different backgrounds and cultures into the dialogue, Niyi has shown us that “marriage-money” matter is not peculiar to you; it is a universal issue, and it is only by thinking and working together that couples can win together.”
Mr Alex & Mrs Anne Egbowawa wrote:
“Niyi Adeosun has a knack for giving people a sense of clarity when it comes to matters of marriage and finance.
Winning Together is a brilliant masterpiece and clear biblical guidance for anyone who wants to focus their energy on marital success and reduce prevailing marital stress. It is more than a book; it is a framework for an enjoyable and God-centred marriage.”
Dr Tade & Mrs. Jennifer Oluyomi wrote:
The book is friendly, witty, fast-paced, and generally an interesting and practical read.
Winning Together is an absolute joy to read. I will recommend all Christian couples and even non-Christians to read this book. If I had my way, I would say every couple intending to get married must read this book during counseling and discuss it before marriage.
The Rev. (Dr) Sunkanmi & Mrs Bimpe Osunsanmi wrote:
This book is a huge blessing and a timely resource. The very interesting and practical story-telling approach makes it very easy to read. It addresses current themes around marriage and finance; bringing out different perspectives with a guided balance based on divine principles from scriptures. Also included, are some godly principles for raising financially-stable children who can maintain healthy relationships.
The book is highly recommended for singles, married, parents, youth leaders, marriage counsellors, and everyone who desires to enjoy healthy and financially stable relationships.

“We love the layout of the book. It is very captivating and exciting. It is a dramatic storyteller using real-life stories to educate the reader on the hard subject of financial management. It touches on every aspect of the family and involves the unborn, toddler, young adult, adult, and the aged.”

"I really enjoyed reading Niyi’s new book, ‘Winning Together’, which I found insightful. His reflection on relationship and money management is daring and convincing. As I read through the exhilarating pages of the masterpiece, something resonated with me which has to do with how our belief system affects how we manage money."
"I am very pleased to recommend Winning Together by Pastor Niyi Adeoshun to all couples; both the newly married and those who have been married for a very long time. If you have ever looked at conflict in your marriage as a problem, this book will make you have a rethink."
