Making Smart Money Decisions: When to Merge Finances — or Not
When it comes to joining finances with a partner, it’s important to proceed with caution. On the latest episode of NerdWallet’s Smart Money podcast, we discussed the risks of merging finances with a partner and when it’s a good idea — or not.
The episode starts with a discussion on the risks of merging finances with a partner. It’s important to assess each individual’s financial situation before taking the plunge.
