Newlywed life is pretty great. You just married the love of your life, most likely honeymooned somewhere amazing and now can look forward to spending the rest of your lives together. At some point, most newlyweds hit the “so now what” point. No need to...
Most newlyweds know that investing can be riskier than just stowing money away into a money market account or CD. As a couple, you may have very different ideas on how to invest your earnings. Instead of every man and woman for him or herself, you should talk to your partner and find out what he/she would like to do as well as inform them of your own ideas.
Money is a big stressor on marriages, but before you panic at the idea of debt tarnishing your new life together, take some time to consider that your partner doesn’t want to be in debt anymore than you do and will need your love and support. Don’t let money get in the way of your happiness when it doesn’t have to!
After the honeymoon and your return from worry-free wedded bliss, it’s time to start thinking of other matters. That doesn’t mean returning to the real world is the end of the fairytale – quite the contrary. Handling specific emergency money matters early on will help to ensure that the fairytale lasts as long as it possibly can.
