Financial stress is the leading cause of divorce in America.

Marriage is an ancient and important institution, but as a financial advisor, I’ve learned that most couples don’t really discuss finances with one another. If they do talk about finances, it can lead to many uncomfortable (and sometimes scary) revelations.

I spoke with Marco and Hillary Romero of @hilcohomes about how they navigated the stress of their financial decisions as they build a marriage and a growing family.

In this episode:

  • See how The Romeros both decided to quit their secure jobs while still on their honeymoon!
  • How they manage their individual financial accounts
  • The Romero “Reward” system for each partner to accumulate points in order to buy the “non-essentials” they desire
  • Dealing with variability in income
  • How they talk about and stay on top of their goals
  • How they think about budgeting
  • The books that helped them organize their love life and financial life.
