When it comes to marriage, there are a minefield of stories and beliefs that come to us as to the right and wrong way to run a marriage, and in particular, money in a marriage. An important topic that governs the future of your assets, it all comes down to the WAY you’re married.

None of us like to talk about death or divorce in the weeks before we get married, it brings out the worst in us. So today’s episode provides a non-emotional perspective on the subject because it’s imperative to be very clear on the way you’re married, as it strongly impacts how your assets will be impacted by creditors, death and divorce.

I really implore you that if you know a person who is considering getting married, please send them this episode so that they can make informed decisions.
