Premarital Financial Counseling: What should an engaged couple be looking for in premarital financial counseling?
One of the best premarital financial counseling questions that surfaced with Cocktails N Conversation is what should couples be looking for when it comes to premarital financial counseling. When a couples is seeking premarital financial counseling they should learn the following: 1) How to decide who should be managing the money 2) How money is being spent and what is the cost of how they spend that money. Does boil down to who is best at handling the administrative skills and don't have to be reminded about paying the bills. The roles of who should manage the money should not be looked at as the traditional roles. It's not the same day when our parents or grandparents were married and only the husband is bringing home the bacon. We know there are women who are bringing home the bacon and it should not hinder the relationship. When couples are searching for premarital financial counseling, they need to get referrals or even seek out their personal banker for the beginning stages. They can research to see if there is someone in their area who is potentially doing it. Check out the entire interview with Cocktails N Convo here which contains a lot of content.
