Budget Templates For Newlyweds



Whether you are getting married, newlywed, or looking to reconnect with your spouse about your finances, the money talk is one of the most important you will have as a couple. Having the money talk early and often will build trust and inspire a deeper connection with your spouse.


Deciding if and how you will combine finances and also how you will budget your life together will help you set realistic financial expectations for your future together. Talking about money seems uncomfortable to most, but why not look at it instead as an opportunity to learn more about your partner and their priorities?


Consider setting aside an evening or two to ask questions around your spouse’s financial past (such as what is your credit score?), lifestyle choices (such as what’s an ideal emergency fund amount), and future plans (what do you want retirement to look like?)
