Avoid Poverty, Get Married

Show Notes

On this MoneyWise, Steve Moore and Rob West discuss the secret to avoiding poverty... tying the knot! On this episode, they discuss what research says about how getting married helps you avoid poverty. They also talk about the huge economic cost of not being married. 

Then, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following:

  • If you have only $300 to pay towards a credit card debt, how can you keep it from going to collections?
  • If you and your wife have a residential loan and two farm loans a totaling $157,000 in debt and would like to rebuild or remodel, could we realistically think about doing this?
  • If you're seeing some discrepancies in your investing, how do you figure out what’s going on?
  • If you're in the army and your family is relocating to a new city, should you rent or buy?
