Newlywed Money Matters

Getting married means rethinking how you handle your money. If you’ve been single through your twenties and thirties, you’ve developed habits when it comes to spending, saving and debt. As you approach your wedding day, rethinking money management comes with the territory. Money becomes a ‘couple’s issue’. There are many aspects to how couples handle financial decisions; joint bank accounts, who’s in charge of the bills, priorities about spending, discretionary money., to name a few. Times have changed since money was solely a husband’s responsibility, especially with two paychecks on the table. Attitudes about handling finances are shifting alongside generational changes in household roles. Figuring out what will work best as you get married will be an ongoing conversation. Money management will keep evolving as your family grows. Keeping the conversation going is what will matter most. Communication, communication, communication!!
