Please stop this.
1). Because you are getting married, you should automatically have joint accounts.
2). Thinking if your future spouse manages the money, you don’t need to be involved.
3). Keeping up with “The Joneses” during wedding planning because the traditional wedding industry says you must have A, B, C and D for your wedding, mind you this is not based on your budget. This sets the tone for dangerous financial beginning to your marital future.
4). Because you nor your future spouse have no debt, you know how to manage money for two people!
5). Not sharing credit reports before getting married.
6). Secretly spending money and not telling your future spouse, even if its online.
If any of those sound like you or your future spouse, your upcoming marriage could very well be on its way to being DERAILED because of your beliefs!
