Finances are a leading cause of tension and arguments in a marriage. Left unchecked, conflicts over budgeting and money management all too often lead to divorce.
In How to Divorce-Proof Your Marriage (Financially), certified divorce financial analyst Tatiana Terekhova, CFP, RRC, CDFA, CFDS, reveals how common problems with cash flow, disorganization, and other money woes can sabotage both your financial journey and your marriage.
Terekhova, herself a divorce survivor, explains how the financial industry tends to push complex investments and life insurance on couples before they are ready. As a result, spouses can run into serious money troubles before they have built a solid foundation of predictable, stable monthly spending and budgeting. She presents a series of practical, logical steps designed to help you develop essential money management skills before you venture into real estate and other investments.
Terekhova's empathetic, reader-friendly guide is enlivened with relatable, real-life stories and includes easy-to-use templates and checklists to help you take charge of your household finances. Her practical insights can assist you in keeping your family's goals on track and defuse or prevent one of the most common causes of failed marriage-mutual anger and distrust over money and spending.
