Whether you are entering a marriage or trying to leave one, it is important to communicate with your spouse. It is where unreasonable expectations raise their ugly heads.
That is when it is important to consult with advisors, whether they are financial, legal, or psychological.
Regarding a marriage, there is alot to talk about: prenuptial agreements, family finances, children, extended families, who owns what property. In divorce alot of the same issues apply, but add to those the issues that of time sharing with children, attorneys fees, spousal support or alimony. And of course the division of marital property and preservation of separate property or inheritences. If there is no commingling during the course of the marriage, separate property remains non marital.
Marriage and divorce are life changing events as is deciding to have children. The best advice is to seek professional help from lawyers, accountants, insurance professionals, finanacial planners, marriage counselors or therapists if you just can’t communicate effectively with your partner or if you are having touble sorting things out by yourself.
