Aretha Franklin Gets Engaged!
In the past, getting married was largely to legitimate having children. Yet according to a 2005 statistic, only 41% of married couples had children. This shows that more and more couples are choosing to get married and to not have children. Because fertility now plays less of a role in marriage, it’s not surprising that older couples are getting married more than ever.
Does it make sense? If people marry for love, it makes sense. But couples should be careful when tying the knot about finances. Wills should be drawn up, discussed with existing family members, and should not be made impulsively!
