This summer my family had the opportunity to participate in two family weddings. With all the excitement and preparation for the “big day” with two families coming together, it is also important for the couple to prepare a strong foundation for money matters. After all, conflict over money remains one of the top reasons for divorce. Money is never simple, and in my years in the wealth management business I’ve learned that marital discord is never simply about the money. Money certainly provides the opportunity to live a certain lifestyle, but it also creates complications as two people come into a marriage with separate money values and unique family histories around money.
So how can people prepare for success as a couple around money?
