From Exes to Experts – Overcoming Financial Infidelity
PODCAST: From Exes to Experts – Overcoming Financial Infidelity
T.H. Irwin and Jessica Klingbaum were divorced at the same time and had only each other to rely on for support. Now, through exEXPERTS, they help other women at every stage in the divorce journey, whether they are only just considering it, and even after. They use their experience to teach women everything they wished they knew, and provide them with the assistance they need. T.H. and Jessica share insights about their community, and the important role money played in their divorces.
- After her divorce, T.H. ensured that her expenses could be covered by child support to create a financial cushion. In the case of any emergency or unexpected circumstance, she would then have the finances to take care of it.
- It is imperative that women develop financial skills to support themselves after divorce because they typically cannot rebound as quickly as their ex-husbands can; especially if their ex-husbands were the primary breadwinners.
- Jessica needed to hire a forensic accountant to discover the money her husband was hiding. Many women are often victims of financial infidelity in their marriage, which occurs when their partners hide information about their finances.
- Self-love is all about moving forward. If you feel stuck you need to look within yourself for a way to help yourself; the power to change your circumstances lies in your decisions.
