Money Watch Q & A: Talk Money Before Marriage
Before you got married, did you sit down and talk serious money issues with your future spouse? A study by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling found that 68% of engaged couples had a negative attitude about discussing money with each other. In fact, 5% of those couples suggested the discussion would lead to calling off the wedding.
Since money is often a top reason for disagreements and arguments among couples - regardless of how long they have been married - we have asked a Marriage and Family Therapist to come on our Money Watch Q & A segment tonight. Jay Jay Lowden works at the Family Education Center and she will offer some communication tools and tips to help couples tackle to ever-so-important topic of matrimonial finances.
