Our Why In most relationships, there is a natural division of labor. Groceries and cleaning supplies, internet and cable, and bill paying are examples of tasks that only require one person to handle them, even though both people are perfectly capable of taking care of them.Along these lines, it is normal that one partner has a stronger grasp of finances than the other, even though both are intelligent and could take on this responsibility. On the one hand, there’s nothing wrong with this division of labor. On the other hand, it leaves the non-financial partner in the dark on a topic that should be open to everyone. Finances are a top reason couples fight, a driving factor in family decision making, and impactful to so many aspects of life. Women and men, whether single or in a relationship, should be empowered to understand their financials and their future. (As an aside, I think children should be educated about finance in schools for similar reasons, but that can be addressed in a blog post.)As we raise our daughter, with a second one on the way, I would never want them to feel beholden to someone else for something so critical to their lives. I want them to be strong, knowledgeable, independent thinkers who are comfortable questioning the way things are done and proposing solutions, and this is my hope for all women and girls too. And that is our mission and OUR WHY at Marriage Financial Solutions Alex, the Director of Marriage Financial Solutions, founded the company so that he and his team could better serve individuals going through a transition.
