Financial Planning Checklist for Newlyweds

Critical Financial Conversations to Have Before Saying “I Do.”

Critical Financial Conversations to Have Before Saying “I Do.”

Money touches and affects everything in our lives. And for married couples, it can often be a major source of stress.

Almost three-quarters of married couples say that financial decisions are a persistent source of tension in their relationship, and seven out of ten have had a disagreement with their partner about finances in the past year.

We are providing this checklist for newlyweds as a way for engaged or newly married couples to approach these potentially intense and emotional conversations. We encourage you to share this booklet with family members or friends whose children or grandchildren are getting married. It might be one of the most valuable wedding presents you can give.
