Q: I am getting married soon. As part of our pre-marriage counseling, my fiancé and I prepared a budget, talked about debt and things like that. What else do we need to be thinking about when it comes to being financially prepared for marriage?
A: Assumptions and expectations.
Imagine a couple on their honeymoon and they go out to a nice dinner. At the end of dinner, the husband pulls out some cash to pay the bill.
