Kiplinger's on Marriage and Money

What causes more problems in a relationship? Money. So take a good look at the article.

Not so fast. You'll have a much better shot at a fairy-tale ending if you take a little time at the beginning to sit down and talk about money. It may not sound like the most romantic topic, and many couples even consider it taboo. "Money is the biggest loaded piece of information you can talk about, bigger even than sex," says Peg Downey, a financial planner and partner at Money Plans, in Silver Spring, Md.
The article points out a good reason to get a pre-nup but goes beyond to give good advice on its subject.
