Growing up we are often taught that it is taboo to discuss money with anyone.
We shouldn’t discuss how much we make, how much another has etc. The whole situation makes it a bit difficult to move through life, from simple things on how much you should be making in your job position to discussions around money roles in relationships.
Things get even more restrained when the thoughts start to revolve around death, divorce and other legal hypotheticals.
My client Kaylin Dillon saw this plain and clear when her own life hit this door. She realized how difficult it was to navigate the legal money waters when someone doesn’t have a mentor or authority figure there to tell you what to do or how to do it. More so, she saw with extreme clarity the desperate need couples have for prenuptial agreements.
Many people hear the term prenup and instantly think ‘unfair’, or that ‘one person in the relationship may be better off.’ Kaylin Dillon Financial is on the move to make sure this is changed, she wants young couples to know that prenups are the simplest way to protect yourself and your money (whatever that may be) from differing cases from new state legislation, to messy divorces.
I am highlighting Kaylin Dillon Financial this month because of the difference she is making in the world. In fact, simply looking at one of her financial passions (money planning in marriages) already causes her to stand out. 36.1% of divorces are attributed to financial difficulties.
And Forbes considers different money styles a detrimental reason for marriage ruin. I have to believe that Kaylin is making a major influence on being sure you and your partner are on the same page with finances is one of the neatest things she’s doing. Quite frankly, if you have the power to eliminate that pesky 36.1% chance you and your true love don’t make it, why wouldn’t you do it?
Since money talk often feels taboo, I have to say, I love that Kaylin is opening the table to open and non-judgemental conversations.
I, myself am very passionate about perspectives and truly believe that it is not what you say but how you say it.
If that is still a leap for you, or you like to gather your info in a different way, she has been on podcasts, and is writing a book!
