Money is the Number One Worry
Women's concern about money even topped their concern about children - not because they are bad moms, but because they are scared that they won't be able to provide for their children financially according to the Francis Financial study cited in last weeks post. Regardless of how participants in the study measured economic security, 52% did not feel financially secure after their divorce. Worst of all, 15% do not understand their financial situation enough to know if they should be worried about it. 11% had no idea if they were even saving enough.
With so much concern surrounding decions that will affect their children, it is important to consider the goals and hopes and dreams women have for their children in the divorce planning process.
