Financial planning in a marriage can be a touchy subject for many couples. Rob Barton of Carson Financial Services,, stops by to talk with Right on the Money Host Dennis Mattern about the responsibility financial advisors have in advising couples. Carlson Financial Services offers workshops for couples that facilitate achieving financial freedom through improved communication. Finances can be a major source of strain in a marriage, especially when a couple doesn’t share the same goals or management of finances. Rob recommends planning out a clear picture of your financial futures as a couple from the beginning of your marriage so that your approach to finances can be a source of peace instead of a cause of friction. When savings or expenses don’t align with long-term goals, the key to resolving differences is active listening and gentle communication.
