As we near the height of wedding season (May through July), those getting married should think about more than just the dress and the flowers. “Everyone planning to get married should sit down and discuss their finances and how they approach spending versus saving,” stated financial advisor Christopher Krell, CFP, CFS. Krell specializes in bringing couples and families together to communicate about finances, discuss current and future financial planning, and prepare for and prevent the potential pitfalls that are common for those who are not financially prepared. A 2012 study, published in the Family Relations journal, came to the conclusion that arguing about money is the top predictor of divorce. “Examining the Relationship Between Financial Issues and Divorce” was authored by researchers Jeffrey Dew, Sonya Britt and Sandra Huston of Kansas State University. “In many cases, these couples could have avoided divorce if they’d communicated from the beginning, had a good financial plan and aligned their finances,” advised Krell.
