Making Marriage and Money Work

Marriage & Money

For an upcoming economics segment with Dr. Julianne Malveaux, we're going to focus on how to best handle your finances in a marriage.

Should you and your spouse have separate accounts? How much do you put in? How do you handle the bills? What about creating trusts and wills? What about beneficiaries (especially if there is an ex involved)? And what are the financial legalities of living together, before and after marriage?

Tell us how you make it work. Or, if you have a question you want to ask on the air, leave us a comment — with an accurate e-mail address, which will not be made public — and we'll get back to you.
