Sad to say, not all life events are pleasant, and the ones that are tough to deal with have some staggering statistics linked to them. 80% of men die married and 80% of females die single. Women are living an average of five years longer than men. In addition, the divorce rate in this country has risen in past years to nearly 50% - a mere flip of a coin. And guess which sex is being given the most responsibility in their "golden years"... you guessed it, women. And the crazy part - 90% of all women will eventually be solely in charge of household finances, but only 20% feel well prepared to make wise decisions.
So you see, just based off of the numbers alone, there is a definite need for some guidance and direction on matters regarding personal and business finance, benefits, and legacy planning. And please understand that it's not that women don't want to be involved in it,
or that they are incapable of handling such matters - it is more of a discussion on how prepared they are to handle it all.
This is where we fit in. Knowledge is power, and we want you to be empowered!
Openly communicate with your mate. Get to understand your personal puzzle and how it should should fit and work for you. Are you missing any pieces? Are you both possibly confused about it all? It's your life - take ahold of it!
No one intends from the beginning of a marriage to have it end in divorce. We all have great expectations for that marital arrangement. But if things do end up with this sad outcome, there are things you can do ahead of time to prepare yourself.
Sad to say, we aren't getting any younger, and with so many entering the "vintage" years of their lives, we know that proper planning in advance = success. How much more so does this apply to ones we love so much?
