Smart couples realize that engaging a financial advisor as soon as they have a “ring and a date” can be one of their best investments in a happy ever after.
A 2013 survey of 191 certified divorce financial analyst professionals noted that 22% of married couples end up in divorce court due to money issues. While the survey found basic incompatibility and infidelity are leading causes of divorce, often money miscues are in the background of these marital headwinds.
Whether you are getting married for the first time or trying again, there are four compelling reasons to hire a financial advisor as a new couple:
- Understand your relationship to money.
- Establish a budget.
- Save for goals.
- Plan for risks.
- Say ‘I do’ to a solid financial future.
