with | August 19, 2019

The problem mom initially brought up was whether the stepdad would help pay for her daughter's college. Mom thought he should; he thought the daughter's education trust was enough.

You'll never get good above-the-surface financial solutions if there are unresolved below-the-surface trust issues.
