Imagine checking your soul mate's credit score before saying I do. Or their IRA before planning for the big day. Too few people ever ask but Jeff Opdyke, personal finance reporter for Wall Street Journal, says a lot of grief could be avoided if more did. A track record on handling personal finance can be very revealing of problems to come in a marriage. But how to ask and not blow the nuptial deal? Advice for those entering marriage or love birds nearing retirement, living “Financially Ever After,” Tuesday at 9 on 90.3.
