Her Money: Money Talks to Have Before Marriage
Divorce happens for a multitude of reasons – but financial issues are a common trigger for the decline of a relationship. So, what can you do before getting married to prevent or at least lessen the chances of your relationship breaking down due to money-related stress? In an article by Her Money, we list out seven critical talks every couple should have before they wed.
A few of the financial topics every couple should talk about before they get married (or even move in together) are:
- What accounts or expenses will you share, and are there any you'd like to keep separate?
- Do you want children, and if so how will you cover all their expenses – from room essentials to food and their future education?
- How do you each feel about taking financial risks (such as investments)?
