Getting married and potentially starting a family is life changing. You now need to take not only your own financial future into account, but also that of your family. Having robust risk measures in place to protect your assets and wealth, as well as good budget and cash flow strategies not only will help ensure that your family is protected from any unforeseen circumstances, but reduce financial stress from having one person out of the workforce when starting a family. And debt reduction strategies to help you manage your children’s future education costs including childcare will be vital. Now is the time to also think about estate planning.
