Overview

Love isn't always followed by marriage!

What do you have in common with Oprah Winfrey, Stedman Graham, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Elton John and David Furnish? They, like you, are part of an unmarried couple and either legally can't or have chosen not to get married.

But that does not mean that you can't share financial and other obligations with your partner. Money Without Matrimony answers the questions unmarried couples have when developing plans to secure their financial futures including:


• Pros and cons of merging your finances
• Determining ways unmarried partners should own property
• Strategies to ensure that your wishes will be carried out under all circumstances
• The importance of partnership agreements and other legal documents for unmarried couples

Authors and Certified Financial Planners™ Sheryl Garrett and Debra A. Neiman guide you and your partner through the necessary steps to protect each other from potential financial ruin in much the same way that federal laws help protect married couples.

If you are one half of an unmarried couple, you owe it to you and your partners' financial future to read Money Without Matrimony.

Editorial Reviews

Gary W. Silverman
"This is a rare book whose information needs to be known by... unmarried couples."
Journal of Financial Planning
Will Leitch
"The book is easy to read, well laid out and has its heart in the right place"
Registered Rep magazine
Library Journal
Certified financial planners Garrett (Garrett's Guide to Financial Planning) and Neiman here target unmarried couples who are cohabiting or considering it. Their guide to money management outlines the legal and financial challenges unmarried partners face and provides specific advice for addressing those issues. The authors begin with suggestions for talking about finances with a partner and setting financial goals. They then cover bill paying, bank accounts, property ownership, insurance, domestic partner benefits, charitable donations, and financial issues related to children. There are chapters on retirement and estate planning and a particularly good discussion on taxes that offers ways to make the most of the tax laws, including "bunching" deductions, so that cohabiting couples can save real dollars when it comes time to pay Uncle Sam. Each chapter finishes with a list of "Bottom Lines"-tasks that will help couples take steps to accomplish financial planning goals. A list of resources points readers to helpful books, web sites, and agencies. Recommended for most public libraries.-Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach LLP, Rochester, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Finally a financial book written just for me!

    Finally a financial book written just for me! My significant other and I have haven?t taken the time to secure our financial future because of a hectic schedule, and frankly, have been intimidated by the process. When the 2000 Census was released, I found out that I was one of 11 million people living with an unmarried partner in the U.S. (including both same-sex and different-sex couples). While it?s nice to know I?m not alone, this book helped me understand how financial planning is especially important for unmarried couples. Unmarried couples do not have the same financial benefits afforded to those who choose to marry, such as health insurance and Social Security survivor benefits. What I love about this book is that the authors explore a wide range of issues, including how to work through a co-parenting agreement and how to decide whether to share a bank account. It?s super easy to use (if we can use it, anyone can!), and includes specific exercises which walked us through those details that I dreaded using simple tools such as bulleted lists, and a glossary of all of that confusing financial jargon. What an inexpensive investment for something that has helped us gain a very clear vision on our financial dreams, motivations, and blocks, in order to prepare my partner and I to plan for financial success.
