Abstract: The purposes of this study were to investigate the financial management attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge of Tennessee husbands and wives, to ascertain the degree of agreement between the spouses, and the factors which affect their financial management. Barriers to successful financial management, level of satisfaction with management, intrafamily decision making, and perceptions of income adequacy were investigated as factors related to the financial management of husbands and wives. Identical questionnaires were completed by 73 husbands and wives who either attended a financial management workshop or who expressed an interest in the workshop. Frequencies, difference scores, correlation coefficients, and multiple regression were utilized to analyze the data.
