At the end of the episode, JoAnn presents some financial scenarios for couples to consider. This episode has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.


“Being richer isn’t always better, at least when it comes marriage, because having a lot of money causes you to have lots of things and causes lots of problems. Richer people have weaker relationships, and money is a big problem in these rich relationships.” — JoAnn “Flash” Fleming on Flash Talks Cash
