Many times, it can be difficult to see past the wedding in terms of financial planning for your marriage.
But your future depends on more than a color scheme and a seating chart so it's time to take a closer look.

Call us pragmatic (that wouldn't be so bad, would it?) but smart financial planning can be a major contributor to a successful relationship. Love will get you pretty far, but rock-solid framework and a long-term goal with your partner will help you grow together and keep the peace when it comes to money matters.
