Planning your wedding is time-consuming and at times very stressful. There seems to be a never-ending list of things to do, from interviewing DJs to trying out different caterers to finding just the right accents to set off your theme, not to mention the big-ticket items like finding a venue, booking an officiant and finding the all-important dress or tux.
When entering a marriage, you bring your personal and financial history to the table. You and your spouse can be coming in with separate property, which is common especially for a midlife marriage. For example, you have a few children, some real estate and/or a small business. The lines can get blurry later into the relationship. Your spouse's name is added to a property title that was once solely yours, or you have been added to their will. Joint accounts and all, it raises the question: "What is mine and what is yours?"
