Hello SOTGC community,
Men and women get married much later in life than they used to. It used to be common for a married couple to combine all assets and open a joint checking account when they got married. But with more couples marrying in their 30’s instead of their 20’s, each partner has typically earned income and accrued assets while living independently.
Is a professional woman who has earned and saved her own money expected to combine finances with her new husband? And what about signing a pre-nup? Is that equivalent to putting a wet blanket on romance?
