Take it from a couple who was there not very long ago: there are a lot of things about launching into a life-long relationship that people don’t tell you. Today, we’re sharing our top tips for newlyweds, including household chores, boundaries, extended family, and money.
In this episode, we talk about:
Our three best pieces of advice for newlyweds, or those starting a committed relationship:
- Don’t do anything in the first year of marriage that you don’t want to do for the rest of your life.
- Take the opportunity to set expectations with family, around holidays and other household boundaries.
- Talk about money. For real. Now is the time to get the tough money conversations out of the way—Make sure you’ve talked about income and debt, and start budgeting or deciding how you’re going to share expenses.
Think about one expectation that needs to be set in your relationship. Think through something you may need to discuss with your partner related to household chores, family, or finance that you haven’t discussed yet. Then consider bringing it up at your next life planning dinner.
