While in LA this weekend, Lauren and I had the pleasure of chatting with an affluent couple during lunch at The Ivy. The story of how they met was intriguing, both had been married several times and both have children around our age. They weren’t married to each other but evidently very much in love, nonetheless, and super friendly. She: draped in Chanel and he: clean cut, blue eyed, and fawning over her.
I digress! Our conversation with them sparked a conversation between us about our ideal financial status we would like to achieve before/by the time we get married. We both agreed that everyone must have stellar credit. I want to own something, before I get married while Lauren wants to be debt free. As business women, this is so important! I stumbled upon this article from my favorite blog Refinery 29 about how to relieve yourself of debt even if not as a preemptive step to marriage.
