Marrying Again? Financial Harmony Should be at Top of Wish List

According to the 2007 U.S. Census, 46 percent of all marriages involved a re-marriage for one or both spouses. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, many couples are considering marriage and maybe re-marriage. Many marriages are said to end because of arguments over money so whether it's for the first or second time, finances should be discussed.

PICPA reminds couples who are getting re-married to consider some of the following items:

Alimony payments

Property owned separately before re-marriage

Making investment decisions together

Combining your money when you marry

Take the couples financial compatibility quiz
