Last night my mom was in town for a meeting for work so she stopped by to have dinner with me. It was a wonderful time to catch up and chat about life. With her having two teenagers still at home and my busy schedule sometime it is hard to find time to chat for long periods of time. Tonight we got a whole three hours worth!
Before she left I had to ask, “What marriage advice do you have for me?” She gave a little laugh and made some comment about not being the one to give marriage advice. She then added, “Make a financial plan that you and your spouse agree on. ….before the age of 44!”
Simple enough it seems! I let her know we had actually been talking about it a lot lately. Although we have a plan that is working great for us right now we wanted to start looking a little more long term and make sure we were doing the best things with our money rather than just good things.
During our search for information and finding a financial adviser we found a few cool things that we wanted to share with you!
