Becoming a Millionaire

As the webmaster I regularly blog to my business financial sites … therefore I couldn’t pass up posting the #1 tip to becoming a millionaire …. a successful husband/wife team effort in life, who knew ? ( me :-)). I have the book noted, a good read for couples that follows “my same name as I banker-uncle” famous quote: “if they look and spend like they have money, they probably don’t…if they look and spend as if they don’t have money, they probably do”. Thanks Uncle Paul, p

1. Only Marry Once
According to “The Millionaire Next Door” by Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D and William D. Danko, Ph.D, the average millionaire is married with three children. The wives of these millionaires are good budgeters and most often described as even more frugal than their husbands. Interestingly, according to Stanley and Danko’s survey, half of these wives do no work outside the home and of those who do, they are most likely teachers.

One upside of only marrying once is avoiding the costs of divorce and of subsequent weddings. The cost of a divorce depends on many factors including income, attorney fees, court fees, and the assets a couple has and how they are divided. The average wedding cost in the United States in 2010, according to The Wedding Report.com, was $24,070.     full story
