With our busy schedules and juggling so many responsibilities, we often make some significant personal decisions that can have financial consequences that we fail to carefully consider. We can protect ourselves from unanticipated twists and turns in situations with some forethought and planning.
In the tapestry of life we regularly make decisions as to who we live with whether it is a significant other or a roommate, whether we commingle our assets with our spouses, and how we establish our credit, whether jointly or independently. These decisions are wrapped up in personal relationships and the hidden risks, though not patently obvious, should be considered. As always, an honest, open, and practical approach is the best strategy to be fulfilled personally and to protect your individual financial status.
