DENVER, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dinner reservations? Check! Engagement ring? Check! We love each other? Check! Are we debt free as we prepare to stand at the altar? I don't know ... uh, love will get us through. We'll worry about that later.
That's where Dr. Taffy Wagner comes in with her groundbreaking fourth book, Bride and Groom Money Talk FAQ. Inside, readers will find answers to over 70 questions helping brides and grooms begin the often-avoided money conversation.
"How many people do you know are caught up in the 'idea' of being engaged and getting married? Finances were the last thing on their minds. Let's face it: courtship today is not the same as it was for our grandparents. Everything needs to be out on the table before making such a commitment," she said.
Due to client demand, included in Dr. Wagner's book are selected chapters on:
- Should we have separate or joint bank accounts?
- My fiance hasn't paid off his student loans, should he have a plan?
- I was married before and have debt from my previous marriage; how do I protect my bride-to-be?
- How much of a say does the Mother of the Bride have in our wedding?
- My mother-in-law is moving in after the wedding? Uh, HELP?
