Money and Marriage Empowerment 101
January 28, 2012
This morning started out with premarital financial counseling questions on Cocktails N Conversation. I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Erika and Robin and these Ladies came out the gate with some of the best questions because each had their own experience when it came to money and marriage. One of the questions was why did you write Bride and Groom Money Talk FAQ because one of the host Erika said she could have utilized the book 15 years ago when she was getting married to her husband. I told her that I wasn't married then but was learning. I shared with her I wrote the book because there was nothing out there within the wedding industry for brides and grooms talking about money and marriage. There's information that talks to them about budgeting for their wedding but not beyond that. Engaged couples are not used to having this discussion because no one really tells them they need to have this conversation before they say "I Do". The second question was when should brides and grooms start talking about money. One of the host said they had been together seven years prior to getting married, they knew how they spent money, etc. I shared how people enter relationships and people assume that money is going to be handled a certain way. I talked about what is their budget before they set a wedding budget.
