Discussing Financial Decisions After Saying I Do

The time of your life is finally here! The excitement on your face clearly indicates that you can’t wait to walk down the aisle to be with your man. However, this is also the time where you will get worried about how the wedding plans are all coming together. Your wedding should not be just about the dress or the cake or the band even though they might seem like the most important things to plan!

 Insurance has become a fundamental factor in life today. Often people who are in love do not focus on the days ahead of the wedding day. Nonetheless, it is imperative that couples realize the importance of planning for their future lives. This calls for a time when couples can sit and make solemn decisions concerning their future. Insurance is one of the matters that affect people in the post marriage category. Hence, taking the time to discuss insurance matters in post marriage is significant to overcoming possible challenges ahead.

You will definitely find your wedding bills mounting up inexorably if you don’t set out your budget at the beginning and stick to it. Keep records of all orders placed such as invoices paid, amounts still outstanding, and general accounting records of your entire wedding in whatever way is most convenient and natural for you.

Insurance is one of the key factors that contribute significantly to stability in marriage. It is crucial to understand that marriage life only becomes stable when financial matters are settled. Often couples will have a major disagreement because of the use of money. Such are the quarrels that can be sorted out by insurance. Hence, couples should take a step and engage in insurance covers as they make serious decisions concerning their future.

After the wedding, though, there’s a marriage to be worked out together. Like the preparation for a wedding, your marriage will have times of excitement, exhaustion, enthusiasm and effort. As they say it’s always a work in progress. You’ve seen enough of life to know that sometimes it takes all you have and just a bit more.

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more about the importance of insurance. We have quite a bit but we really need to up it–we haven’t changed it since my last son was born, 5 years ago. One more child means we need more life insurance.

    A friend of mine recently lost her husband, and since he had been unemployed prior to his illness diagnosis, they had no life insurance in his name. Now she is raising a young child on her own, without the comfort of life insurance.

    I think dealing with the finances can be the most challenging part of marriage.

  5. My daughter set a budget and they absolutely kept to it!

  6. We actually just got a new life insurance policy on me last week!

  7. I’m planning our wedding right now &I am SO grateful that we’ve already lived together as a family with our son for three years because it means we’ve already done all the hard stuff- the financial decisions, insurance, etc. If I had to think about that right now ON TOP of all of this wedding planning, I’d be going crazy!!
