I read recently on a problem page in a Sunday paper about a woman (early 30's and childless)who was due to marry a man who, she knew, had inherited 'a large sum ' after his mother's death and before she knew him. He also ran a small business. No mention of whether he was previously married or had children. Her problem was that he would not discuss the details of his inheritance (in other words, how much!) with her, and neither would he allow her access to his business bank account. TBH, I was surprised to see that the reply from the 'relationship expert'. was that she should seriously rethink her relationship with her fiancé if he wasn't completely honest about his financial situation.
My personal opinion is that if they had set up a business together or maybe he had set it up himself AFTER they became engaged, or if he had inherited money AFTERthey knew each other then, fair enough, divulge all. In the event of a divorce then the man (and the woman of course) would be required to show the court details of all their finances anyway.
Was this a case of 'what's yours is mine - and what's mine's my own!'
What do gransnetters think?
