Did you know past statistics have shown that in the U.S. approximately 50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second, and 73% of third marriages end in divorce?*

Not surprisingly, a major cause of divorce in marriages is money. *

You’ve found that special someone (again) but, you’re still trying to figure out how you talk about the “M” word without ruining the romance. You know it's smart to work together, but where do you start? Building a solid foundation of communication and partnership around managing your money is crucial to lifelong intimacy, trust, and success in a marriage.

Start your marriage right and give it every chance to thrive!

Join our program “Committed” for 5 info-packed sessions and exercises to help you and your significant other build the strongest foundation possible for your life together. Partner with 2 specialists, with breadth and depth in financial services and intimate understanding of money behaviors. Ivy Menchel and Carrie Rattle are committed to helping you succeed.

What You’ll Learn in 5 Weeks:
