Group to offer free marriage, finance classes

RICHMOND — Madison County couples can take advantage of free marriage and finance management classes beginning as early as Wednesday. These classes are provided by the Kentucky River Foothills Development Council.

“Financial & Relationship Peace: Foundational Skills” classes will meet for six weeks and are a part of the Foothills’ Healthy Marriage and Relationship Project.

“Classes are open to all married couples, engaged couples and single men and women who want to learn more about money, credit, budgeting and relationship skills,” said Karen Bailey, spokesperson for Kentucky River Foothills. 

All training materials will be provided at no cost to participants.

“Classes are taught by qualified instructors in a one-on-one setting and/or in a group setting,” Bailey said. Classes include videos, workbooks and group discussions.

The two main components of the classes include Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace and PREP’s Within Our Reach Relationship Strategies. 

“Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace will cover savings, relating with money, budgeting, collections, consumer awareness and dangers of debt,” Bailey said. “Within Our Reach will cover keys to good communication, commitment, dealing with stress, the importance of fun and handling money together.”
