New York divorce attorney and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst Lisa Zeiderman was included in this recent Kiplinger article by Stacy Francis, CFP®, CDFA®, CES™ about female breadwinners being overburdened at home. According to the Journal of Family Issues, breadwinning women spend a disproportionately higher number of hours on household tasks and child care. Lisa shares that one of the top reasons couples get divorced is because of money disagreements.
“Arguments are even more likely in non-traditional marriages where the role of the main provider is reversed. In these marriages, it is even more important that the couple be on the same page when it comes to money.”
