When couples marry, they don't just merge their emotional lives, but their financial ones as well. However, too few couple discuss their current financial situations, including debts and assets, before they marry. Perhaps even fewer discuss their views on saving and spending and their financial goals for the future.
While discussing finances may be the last thing you want to do as you're planning for your wedding, your intended's debt and credit issues could become your own if you don't properly plan. That's just one reason why a prenuptial agreement is a wise idea, even if your partner isn't a tech billionaire and you're not set to inherit millions from your parents.
