LISTEN | Marriage or Money?

Marriage or Money?

Marriage and money can be a lethal and often hotly debated topic that can certainly ruffle a few feathers. This is what The Money Podcast looks at today.

Marriage or Money?

Marriage and money can often be like oil and water and in this episode, podcast hosts Justin Harrison and Dawie Bester unpack what it takes to have a successful marriage around money - or the lack thereof.

Be warned though, this episode is certain to get some people very hot under the collar as we cut through some deep emotional issues and confront modern-day marriage and the issues related to money that are often at the heart of many marital issues.

It's a 6-minute listen and it's not for the faint-hearted.

Still on the topic and retirement planning is something that most people put off way into their thirties and by the time they realise they need to plan for retirement it often requires such drastic lifestyle changes that most people simply continue to ignore the disaster ahead.

With our increase in life expectancy, it is anticipated that most people will live close to 90 and if you factor in that most people will retire at around age 65, that means you have 25 years of living expenses you need to make provision for from your earnings today.

This coupled with the fact that a recent survey of first world countries and their pension schemes anticipates that pension funds will only be able to support 45% of retirees in the next 50 years, so the question is what can you do to make sure you have a secure financial retirement plan? It's a five-minute listen that could change how you view your retirement.

Retire rich and happy
