The daughter chose the wedding! I expect that most women (and probably a few men) would choose the wedding, which I think […]

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

I was reading Jean Chatzky’s column (sorry, no link yet) in the October issue of Money when I came across four questions that adult children should ask their [older] parents. This is all a part of “the conversation” about finances that every family should have. The questions, which come from John Migliaccio, an expert on […]
