Financial planning for a second marriage

When people in Rhode Island decide to remarry, they may want to integrate lessons that they learned from an earlier marriage and divorce. Because financial issues can lead to so many conflicts, people may want to enter a second or later marriage with a clear financial plan in place. In addition, many people remarry at a later age, and both partners may bring with them significant assets as well as children from an earlier marriage. Statistics indicate that 40% of all marriages involve people who have been married at least once in the past.
