Joe and Al start off this first hour discussing some financial changes that will arise from the new national same-sex marriage law. Topics also discussed on today’s show include summertime retirement strategies, factoring taxes into your cash flow needs, smart real estate moves for retirement and what to do when there’s a market correction.
