    While it’s true that numbers and math don’t care about your gender, numbers and math are hardly the driving force behind personal finances. Instead, outside cultural influences often affect our financial situations more than we’d like to admit.

    For decades, owning a vehicle was synonymous with freedom.

    Having a car meant not having to be at the mercy of a bus or train schedule; it meant you could live and work in a different neighborhood from where you worked or went to school. Vehicles even became a place of refuge – a place to sing out loud or rest your eyes.

    Have you talked to your children about money?
