Getting Married - Starting off on the Right Foot

Getting married poses many money management considerations for you and your significant other. Is one of you a spontaneous spender and the other a planner and a saver? Will you pool your money or keep separate accounts? If you come to consensus on these and other questions before saying "I do," the course of true love is more likely to run smooth.

Getting started

Discussing your attitudes about money early on will help prevent later disagreements. Talk with your partner about how you approach handling money, addressing questions like:

  • What each of you spend money on
  • How much each of you should be able to spend without consulting the other
  • Risk tolerance when it comes to investing and investment goals
  • How you each feel about using credit
  • Appropriate uses of credit
  • How much debt is too much
  • Career goals
  • Savings goals
  • Spending plans
