Loaning Money to Family
On a podcast about family and finances this is perhaps one the trickiest and most stressful question you two may have to answer – Should we lend money to our family?
I don’t think it’s about trying to keep money to yourself. I think most of us would gladly help out a loved one. The hard part is when it is someone dear to us who is constantly having problems with their finances. Our gut is wondering if we’re helping them out or if we’re enabling them.
Dorethia Kelly, founder and author of Money Chat, was my special guest and we had a really open discussion on how to help out your relatives. We also get into finding boundaries within your marriage because nothing can cause tension between you two like your family.
