Houston Money Week

Dear Houston Money Week Partners, in the wake of the COVID-19, also know as Coronavirus outbreak, we have received official notice from our national partner, Money Smart Week that all events are being canceled. This includes all Houston Money Week events, signature events, and contests.

For us, this means that your events should be canceled and we ask for you and your organization to use your best judgement as the situation continues to unfold.

If you, as a partner organization, are still planning to host events, this will not be a Houston Money Week branded event, i.e. no Money Week advertising or logo usage.

We are so grateful for your partnership and support and want you to know we plan to continue our resources into next year to make Houston Money Week 2021 bigger and better than ever.

How To Protect Your Credit And Assets When Marrying Someone With Debt

You spent your single days building a good credit rating, paying off your debts and saving a nice chunk of change. Your partner? Not so much. In fact, your future spouse has quite a bit of debt.

Marriage is about making it work for better or worse, but it doesn’t seem fair that exchanging vows could unravel all your hard work. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to. Here’s what you should know about protecting your finances when marrying someone with debt.

How Getting Married Affects Your Credit

When two people get married, they combine many areas of their lives. The two of you may share the same home, bank accounts, perhaps even last name. So how does getting married affect your credit?

Best Money Market Accounts of May 2020

Like almost any financial product, money market accounts have a number of advantages, but they also have some disadvantages that could make them less appealing for some people.

Withdrawal and transfer restrictions: Regulation D is a federal law that restricts you to six “convenient” transactions — such as withdrawals and transfers — from savings and money market accounts per month. These accounts are meant to be vehicles for savings, so the Federal Reserve actively discourages taking money out of them too often.

Only certain types of transactions are subject to Regulation D, including:

  • Electronic transfers
  • Wire transfers
  • Debit card purchases

About

Money Printer Go Brrr is an image macro series depicting Wojaks representing the federal reserve printing money to prop up the bond market in attempts to prevent an economic downturn. The memes were popularized in March 2020, following the United States government loaning $1.5 trillion to several large banks following a massive stock market crash during the 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak.

On March 9th, 2020, Twitter user @femalelandlords tweeted an image of a Zoomer Wojak wearing an anarcho-capitalist bowtie pleading with a Boomer Wojak representing the United States Federal Reserve not to “artificially inflate the economy by creating money to fight an economic downturn,” leading the Federal Reserve to reply “haha money printer go brrrrr” (shown below).
