The 5 Financial Topics You & Your Groom Have to Discuss—Before You Get Married

The 5 Financial Topics You & Your Groom Have to Discuss—Before You Get Married


We know that posting about your marital finances isn’t exactly as fun as chatting about what flavor of macarons you’re going to get for your wedding favors, but every once in a while we’ve just gotta pop into that topic.

We saw this great piece on HuffPo today on the five financial conversations you’ve got to have before getting married, and we couldn’t agree more! It basically covers all of the things we’ve harped on before—how, before you are married, it’s best to figure out things like, say, who’s the spender and who’s the saver; what your longterm financial goals are; how you’re going to combine your finances; who has what debt (this is not an area where either one of you are going to want to be surprised), and all of those things that admittedly are not all that fun to talk about—that can be stressful, even, if we’re all being honest—but that will absolutely come back to haunt you if you don’t hash them out now.

Have you and your groom figured out how your finances will work once you’ve gotten married?
