When you say "I do," your new marriage status immediately triggers literally hundreds of laws to which you are bound, with potentially huge economic consequences for you. For example, consider this:
- Depending on where you live, you might be liable for your spouse's medical bills.
- Upon divorce, your spouse might be entitled to a portion of your business, or alimony.
This Jam Session will provide crucial knowledge of how the fine print in the marriage contract may affect you and your finances, and how to protect yourself.
