With financial problems the leading cause of divorce, this is certainly a much-needed title. Estess, who is the founding editor of Sylvia Porter's Personal Finance magazine and author of Kids, Money & Values (Betterway, 1991), shares the stories of nearly 100 remarried couples and her own personal experience to talk about the financial aspects of remarriage. She takes into consideration all possible scenarios of remarriage, e.g., how to deal with child support and alimony responsibilities from previous marriages; financial obligations to children and stepchildren living and not living with the new couple; and buying a home in the new marriage and selling home(s) from previous marriages. Estess also includes a very helpful consideration of prenuptial agreements and the importance of discussing financial issues before the marriage, even if a prenuptial agreement is not used.
