Helping Newlyweds Have the Money Talk – Before and After the Wedding

We are smack dab in the midst of wedding season and little birdy told me that Elle Martinez of CoupleMoney.com is working on a newlywed personal finance guide. So, I asked her to join me on the Midday Money Show to give us a sneak peak at the topics she thinks couples should focus on.

I have a wedding to attend this summer.

I’m looking forward to wedding festivities, but I do wonder how couples address the money topic before the wedding – and then after. Elle was very gracious to lend us her expertise, and I think you’ll find plenty of value in the tips she provides.
