I was brought up to believe you never spend more than you have (ok dipping into my dad’s wallet sometimes helped!). I learned to save and make pretty good choices all things considered. Then I met my husband and from the time we started dating until the time we divorced, I allowed myself to make decisions that were NOT in the best interest of myself, nor my family.
Divorce is an eye opener for many women, for you get to see what you really are worth dollar wise $$$! You are required to put together your financial statements in order to do equalization. I always laughed and told my friends, the only person who truly knows a person’s worth are their lawyer and their accountant. Many people appear to be financially sound but aren’t.
