When Differences Divide: Resolving Family Tensions Around Money
What do you do when you and your spouse have completely different views of finances? When your brother gets more? When your siblings think the profits should be divided differently? When family succession plans don't work out? When you can't reach agreement on a pre-nup? This issue explores the challenges that arise when family members have differing approaches to money. Includes "big picture" interviews with philanthropic advisor Charles Collier and Professor Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, both of Harvard University; family stories of tensions resolved; resources, tips, and more. Applicable to nuclear and extended families, traditional and non-traditional.
