    Sure, but only if someone paid for it for me. : (0 votes)

    It depends - it would have to be crazy confidential. : (1 votes)

    Nice!

    DH and I began that discussion through our premarital counseling…. in depth anyways.

    We used the book Preparing For Marriage & in the first chapter there were 2 worksheets that covered all those things and REALLY opened the communication doors!

    YAY for communicating! 😉

    We were pretty lucky, we both seem to handle money in the same way. We talked about it, joined our accounts, and have no issues so far. We see a financial advisor for help investing though.

    i am so lucky my husband is in financial services – he is a whiz when it comes to budgeting, investing and saving. i was always good at budgeting, i get paid once a month so i had to learn, but saving and investing – no way jose i just couldnt do it. i got really good at saving after i got engaged, i had reason to save and i had a good chunk of cash in saving PRIOR to the wedding – now we save together but i still suck at the investing part haha.

    we def went over this stuff in our pre-cana (the catholic version of premarital couseling) and i really think it helped us get a hold on how we would handle our finances before combining. plus it really helps with communication like you said.

    Money is one of the biggest causes for failed marriages so i think its super important to talk about finances openly and honestly and preferably before combining incomes. i guess it really depends on the couple too. my husband is more stingy and i like to shop, but im not out of control and he isnt scrooge mcduck and counts his pennys so we make it work.

    DH and I both handle money the same way so our money talk was pretty easy.  Financial coaching/classes would really be unnecessary for us.

    Plus, his mom is a CPA and my mom does all of the bookkeeping for my parent’s business so between their examples and lessons growing up – DH and I have our shit pretty well together when it comes to finances.
