Fighting about money is the #1 reason for divorce in America. From first-time newlyweds at the start of new careers to people marrying later in life or on their second or third marriage, couples face an overwhelming task when creating and managing a two-income household. Most couples find themselves frustrated when it comes to combining their complex financial histories, and, as a result, both their relationships and bank accounts can suffer.
David Bach, nationally renowned financial advisor and author of the bestselling Smart Women Finish Rich, knows that it doesn't have to be this way.
