Time for Pre-Marital Counseling
Howard Dayton and Steve Moore cover a 'laundry list' of financial preparations to get your marriage off to a good start. Then they answer listener questions at (800) 525-7000 and MoneyWise@Compass1.org:
- "We're debt free and looking to purchase a summer cottage - would it be wiser to borrow the money at low interest OR liquidate some securities we're about to inherit?"
- "Can you recommend any home-based businesses?"
- "We're considering moving abroad in 2-3 years - is it worth refinancing?" (Howard recommended checking out BankRate.com and HUD.gov)
Mentioned on today's program was Howard's book, 'Money and Marriage God's Way', as well as several Compass books for children and teens: 'The ABC's of Handling Money God's Way', 'The Secret of Handling Money God's Way' and 'The New Bicycle'. Be sure to check out the Compass website for a complete listing of helpful resources and radio archives.
