Bartlett Law Firm, a family law specialist, is urging couples considering marriage to discuss their financial issues prior to tying the knot. The law firm has successfully represented hundreds of people through a divorce, with the most significant issues discussions and delays revolving around monetary issues.
Money is the number one source of arguments and divorce in America today, but it is also a taboo subject in the run-up to marriage for many couples. People are ashamed of the debt they hold and do not want to risk losing the person they love due to shame or embarrassment, choosing instead to bury their head in the sand. Unfortunately, this is not a long-term strategy and can lead to arguments within the marriage once the true scale of the problem comes out.
A pre-nuptial agreement is becoming ever more critical for people with a high net worth, although again, bringing up this topic is not the most romantic gesture one party in the marriage can make. However, working through these issues and setting out an agreeable plan for both parties before the wedding could actually bring the couple closer together.
“I have personally represented many clients going through a divorce over the years, and in over 90 percent of cases, money is the most contentious issue,” said Yelda Bartlett of Bartlett Law Firm. “As a company, we provide a lot of advice and guidance to our clients, pre-wedding, because unfortunately, most people don’t talk about financial issues before they get married. Having done a lot of family law litigation, I see it on the other end, and most of the divorces we litigate have to do with people who hadn’t discussed financial issues before they got married. That is why we are urging as many people as possible to discuss their financial situation with their prospective partner before getting married.”
