There are married couples that put so much time into planning for a wedding. These couples may not spend any time thinking about how they have to live after a big extravagant wedding is over. These newly married couples will often go into the marriage with debt and a serious problem when it comes to their finances.
No married couple wants to fight about money, but not planning for the household budget because you have over spent on a wedding is one of the easiest ways for couples to go broke. It is also the start to a downward spiral in the marriage. If you want to have a successful marriage you have to start off right with your finances. This is one of the biggest things that married couples tend to argue about. It is a problem that sneaks in because neither partner bothered to discuss it beforehand.
Sometimes it is not the wedding but the debt that a person carries from a previous relationship. This can also be a culprit because it is rarely discussed when people are trying to get to know one another. They look at the romance factor and never think about the fact that they are trying to build a lifelong relationship.
In order to establish a relationship that will last a lifetime you have to be mindful of the fact that you are going to be spending money together and paying bills together. If you are not doing this you are going to have a hard time trying to build a relationship that will last.
Another thing that you must take a look at when you are trying to get to know one another is how you actually spend money. If you spend excessively while your partner spends modestly this may be great for you, but it is naturally bad for your partner. If they feel that they have to worry about the money that you are spending it is going to cause trouble in the relationship.
Most married couples find themselves fighting over money because their value systems are different. What one person may think is absolutely necessary may be considered a luxury item to the person they are married to. These are things that married couples must discuss.
