We all go through many stages and experiences in life—some good and others painful. From births, marriages and financial successes to deaths, divorces and financial hardships; we are constantly forced to evaluate our current situation and to make changes and adjustments accordingly.
As we move through the various stages in our lives, it's normal to have questions and concerns about one's own future as well as the futures of loved ones. This often becomes especially apparent when an individual becomes a parent or marries and must protect and provide for another person. Regardless of one's life stage or circumstances, everyone can benefit from taking steps to plan for the future.
