Many people who marry young don't even think about a prenuptial agreement. Oftentimes, this is because young people don't have assets to consider before the marriage takes place. But what happens when things change? Can a couple sign a prenup post nup? Thankfully, yes. At any point during the marriage, a couple can sign a legal agreement about their finances, aka a postnuptial agreement. Let's look at this idea a little more in depth.

Who Needs a Postnup?

Slowly but surely we are making our way across this nation and taking in the sights. Well, not really. What we are taking in, however, is what each state in our country offers up in terms of plans for saving for college – their 529 plans. This time out, we look to Oklahoma (where the wind comes sweeping down the plain).

The Plans and Their Similarities

We continue our finance definitions series with our focus on stock-related terms, and we now come to the phrase "periods of illiquidity." This term is rather simple, so we'll get a little break from our intense stock terms. Even so, the phrase is an important definition to know and keep in mind as you invest, so let's dive right into the definition!

The Basic Definition

This weather has been uh-maze-ing. Absolutely, fantastically, wonderfully amazing. It’s reached 65, 70 and 75 degrees in the last three days alone, and each day has been sunnier than the last.

Surprisingly, I was able to resist playing hooky by making a daily schedule for myself – and by turning my computer monitor toward the window. Sure, there have been times that I’ve had to squint to see the words swimming across the page, but it was well worth the effort.

Groupon. Saveology. Living Social. Unless you're living under a rock, chances are you've probably heard of at least one of these sites. Websites that hook the consumer up with local business services at a deep discount are big these days, and it seems new similar sites are popping up on the web often. But do these sites really save you money?

Know Your Stuff

If there's one thing that's difficult for a child to understand, it's a change in finances. Often, their entire short lives have centered around one way of living, so switching gears can seem unfair, especially when the alteration means cutting back on some of the things they have learned to expect in life. So how can you as a parent explain to them why Chuck E Cheese is out of the question when life throws you for a financial loop? Let's look at some options.

Explain Money

They say time flies, and I now agree with them (whoever that mysterious "they" and "them" are). My gals are turning six this year. This year, most of the kids in my girls' kindergarten class have had parties with friends, and guess what my two are clamoring for? You got it: a friend-filled bonanza at a happenin' spot. And what am I clamoring for? You got it again: a happenin' spot that doesn't break the bank.

As we continue our financial definitions series, we come to two related terms: the trade date and the settlement date. These two dates define when you purchase a stock and when you take ownership. Confusing? Well, let's take a closer look.

Trade Date

The weeks are flying by at top speed now, and I’m beginning to feel the need to nest in preparation for baby’s arrival. While I sit here in my little office typing up a storm, I imagine placing the crib on this wall, the changing table beneath the window and a chair in the corner. The problem is, I don’t have a crib. Or a complete changing table. Or a chair.

The following is a post that has gone viral on Facebook, but it is so pertinent to life that I really wanted to share it, comment and open it up to discussion. So here it goes: the viral post entitled "What Every Father Should Know About His Daughter."
