Emily Pollock: ‘What happens to your debt when you get married?’
Money can’t buy love, and it sure can get in the way! One of the leading causes of divorce in the U.S. is financial difficulty. While 9 million proposals are expected to take place on Valentine’s Day alone this year, the love potion may turn sour when money comes into question. Emily Pollock, a matrimonial law partner, visits Bold TV and C-Suite to share some advice on the role finance plays in marriages as well as divorce. When the two become one, financial conversations are essential even if the topics are uncomfortable. What if your partner makes more money than you? Are you comfortable with significant credit card debt if that means you can have a more luxurious lifestyle? Are you comfortable with a mortgage? These types of questions can make or break a relationship. Initiating difficult conversations leads to open dialogue. When it comes to money, people have different perspectives that shape how they deal with it. Figure out how your partner views money, and decide how you will face future financial hurdles. Figure out who will handle the money. If you’re not the breadwinner, Pollock tells BoldTV and C-Suite that there are a lot of ways to contribute to a relationship that don’t come with a dollar sign.
