I recently received an email from a female reader seeking my input on a situation that she's dealing with.She's a single woman without kids who's dating a divorced dad with a daughter.Allvine's solution: Approach family finances as if you were running a business.
He probably can't remember the last time he had a good time. Somewhere in between platonic-like touching and mauling makes a divorced guy happy.
Chances are, the last few months (or years) of his marriage weren't fun. He doesn't want you plopping yourself down on his lap and making out at the dinner table at a fancy restaurant. Unlike guys before marriage, divorced guys aren't into games.
Do yourself a favor: Make sure all board members review this before you talk.
One of the first issues newlyweds face is how to handle their finances."Couples struggle about this one," says Ruth Hayden, author of "For Richer, Not Poorer: The Money Book for Couples." Should you merge everything you have and earn into one joint account, or should you maintain individual accounts and open a joint one for household expenses?
The guy recently got out of a long term relationship (his marriage.) He doesn't need a girlfriend who he has to call every two minutes, or who he feels obligated to go out with every Saturday night.
