A Seminar for Women: Protecting Your Financial Interests in Marriage

Is Your Marriage Financially Intimate?

• Do you know what your marital assets are and how they are held (stocks, bonds, savings accounts, property, etc.)?
• Do you know your net worth?
• Can you discuss money with your husband?
• Does he have a will, living trust or trust? Do they protect you?
• Does your husband have life insurance? Do you?
• Do you know your husband’s financial advisors?
• Have you been involved in your marital finances?
• Could you manage on your own if you had to?

Your life would change drastically if you were widowed or divorced. Financial Intimacy helps make your marriage financially transparent. You deserve, and the law defends your right, to be involved with your marital finances.

Here’s Why
When two people marry, they become one legal and financial unit. California and eight other states are community property states. That means everything your husband does financially directly affects you.

If you were to be widowed or divorced, ignorance of the law will not protect you against creditors, taxes, and decisions your husband made, with or without your knowledge.
Learning about your marital finances is a smart and easy thing to do. Protecting yourself before a crisis is even smarter. Hundreds of women have already benefited from attending “A Wife’s Guide to Financial Intimacy”.

It can happen to you. It happened to me.
I’m Helga Hayse. This seminar is a combination of my research and personal life experience in being widowed without warning. Ironically, my husband died in an accident just as I was taking this seminar public.
I never imagined my research would save my own life and make such a difference to other women who might be widowed or divorced. (Real Women).
I often meet widows and divorcees who say they just didn’t know how important it is to participate in their marital finances. It’s not only important. It’s vital to a woman’s self esteem and financial well being. Wives are one- half of the marriage partnership. It’s important for you to know what’s going on financially.

It’s easier to prevent problems than solve them under pressure
If you’re not participating in or managing your family finances, this seminar is a wake up call.
Women who have attended are amazed at how much they can learn in four hours. You will be too. And you’d be surprised at how many husbands want their wife to understand the finances.
