Do identify and work out differences in attitudes toward money

Do agree up-front how you will handle household finances

Do discuss the lifestyle you envision

Do learn to create and use a simple budget — together

Do decide how family will impact finances


Do not share private information — until it’s time

Do not assume your credit reports and scores will merge once you marry

Do not let debt be a deal-breaker

Do not lie
