Edward Jones Financial Advisor Alison Gilman Aquino discusses how second marriages can affect your finances. 40 percent of marriages in the United States are second marriages for at least one of the participants, and blended families are becoming more of the norm. Gillman Aquino says when it comes to past financial obligation, all the cards need to be out on the table. She suggests looking at three areas: child support, alimony, and debt, and setting up three accounts: his, hers and ours.
