Personal Finance Tips For You.com
You really want to know something about your fiancés finances before you say I do. You just don’t know how your future spouse has paid their bills and you really want to know about this prior to getting married. You are hoping to avoid a possible problem with this issue later on in your marriage. Just getting you and your fiancés finances out front so to speak is where you’re hoping to be as part of your relationship.
Finance questions before marriage may help you and your future spouse understand where you both stand financially in the relationship. If your future spouse is not able to contribute financially or does not have stellar credit, you will know this before you say your vows. You may want to consider some of the following questions to ask your future spouse prior to getting married:
How much money do you earn?
Can I see a copy of your credit report and credit score?
Have you ever filed for bankruptcy and are there any judgments against you?
Do you pay child support? (If so how much and how often?)
Do you have a checking and savings account? (How much is in each?)
If we purchase a home will we own the home jointly? (Do you have utilies in your name currently? If so, are they current? Have you ever been evicted?)
