Money and Marriage Two: A Narrative Guide to Financial, Estate, and Retirement Planning in a Second Marriage is about law, money, and marriage. Each of us wants love and financial security, but there can be conflicting interests in a second marriage when you have children from the first. Here, you will learn legal and financial ways to support and strengthen your second marriage as you negotiate and make smooth the financial relationship. At the same time, however, you will learn hardball techniques to protect yourself and your children. Many second marriages don’t last, and blood is blood. The question you may ask is, “Can I be fair, yet smart?”
With an understanding born of experience, the author shares his answer through a story. The setting is an adult education course taught by two attorneys, one an estate planner, the other a divorce lawyer. The course combines a legal and financial mini-text that can be scanned, read, or studied with a highlighter, with a plot that captures it all with dialogue, character, humor, and romance. The instructors and their six students bring you into the intimacy of their lives as they struggle to achieve both love and financial security.
