Newlyweds and Finances

With wedding season here, it's time to discuss newlyweds and finances. What are the essentials every couple should know before merging their money?

Marriage and money can sometimes be complicated, stressful, and tricky when you’re not on the same page.

Ideally, you’ll have the conversations before you tie the knot, but even if you’ve been married for years it’s possible to get on the right track together.

This week I was invited to join in on chat hosted by Experian talking about Financial Tips for Newlyweds. We covered a lot of ground.

Everyone discussed from personal experience and from what they’ve seen with others couples big issues and questions that come up when you’re married such as:

  • key financial items couples should discuss
  • financial information should married couples know about each other
  • advice for newlyweds

I want to share just a few highlights with you.

Hope you enjoy!
