You meet, you date, you fall in love and get married, but before you say I do, experts say couples need to be on the same page financially.
Balancing newlywed finances
Figuring out finances can be tricky for newlyweds. Experts say being on the same page financially can be the secret to building a happy marriage.
A survey on couples and money released by Capital One pointed out that younger people are more prone to conflicts with their partner about money: 36% disagree monthly (or more frequently) with their partner.
Experts say couples can have a joint account for shared expenses, like rent, and still keep separate accounts for individual purchases like a Seahawks jersey or a new handbag.
The bottom line, talk openly about your budget, spending habits, and any debt you are bringing to the relationship.
