After revealing this personal information, she was shocked to hear him exclaim, “I can’t afford to marry you!” This was followed by the news that the wedding was off. What Marilyn did next to save face, temporarily cost her to lose self-esteem, but put her on a path to financial righteousness. This book is a must read for all – women, men, couples, and young people-who want to minimize their mistakes, master their money and secure their financial future.
