The concept of setting aside some money to be stored in order to meet a sudden need or need is certainly no stranger. In the past, people often saved in piggy banks, under pillows, or in cabinets, until now almost everyone has saved at a bank.

It’s not matre, yes, but we really need to know how he managed his finances. Everywhere you are still using facilities from his parents – including cars to credit cards – most likely he is the type of man who is not independent.
2. Wedding party
We and the couple must think about how the wedding will be held. Does the joint venture use our savings and partners, or still receive donations from parents? We recommend that you use personal funds and a degree of reception according to the budget available. Why is it stuck in debt just for ‘one day luxury’? Our lives are still a long couple!
3. Agreement after marriage
Be open from the beginning to the couple how we manage finances all this time. If you are still helping your parents, say this so as not to backfire later. Start sharing responsibility … Read More
