Marriage, divorce and money

Everybody knows getting married can be expensive, but if you're already married, getting divorced could cost you more.

Money Expert Nathan Bachrach has a few simple rules you should follow if you want to retire with a nice nest egg. 

First - don't get married. But if that's just not an option, move on to rule number two. 

Don't get divorced; it can devastate your finances. 

The average contested divorce in the United States costs between $15,000 and $20,000. 

If you can keep the peace, it'll cost you less - between $1,500 and $2,000 for an uncontested divorce. 

But the more assets you have, the more you'll have to pay attorneys to wade through the paperwork. 

And that, Bachrach says, makes marriage counseling look like a bargain.
