Ah, life. It continues whether we are prepared or not. But preparation is key to navigating life events that affect our finances.
Two become one, and that means shared responsibilities and incomes. Let's face it -- life insurance may not be top-of-mind for couples embarking on a lifetime together, but perhaps it should be. If one of you was unable to work, could you afford your mortgage or your day-to-day bills?
If you start your financial planning early in your marriage, you'll have a better chance for financial success, and you'll increase your future options.
