before you commit yourself into “Till death do us part” contract you need to know what that person earns, what debts they owe and what their financial plans are for the future. When you make those vows, you’re also agreeing to a financial partnership with your beloved. You will need to know that their goals and spending habits are compatible with yours and that you’re not marrying someone who will drain you financially, destroying all the hard work you’ve done to create a financially secure life for yourself.
Though it might be an exciting time when you’re considering taking the plunge and getting married, don’t forget that you really need to have a serious talk with your new partner about money before you get married. Though this may be an awkward discussion to have, especially in our African Culture, this may sound really bad,especially for men. What kind of man who cannot provide for his Woman!
