A good relationship is difficult to find. You were one of the lucky ones who managed to find the perfect person and grabbed on tight. Over time, though, things have begun to change.

Going to college is the time for sons and daughters to learn about finances and other business matters. It is also a good time to begin discussions about prenuptial agreements and their part in a divorce.
