‘She came from a family that didn’t really discuss money’: How this financial coach helped his wife build credit

Before Wilson Muscadin and his wife got married, they shared discussions about their finances.

Muscadin knew that talking with your partner about how you each manage money is an important step in a relationship, and financial experts would generally agree with him.

But when Muscadin brought up the subject of money, it turned out that he was more comfortable talking about finances than his better half was.
