 by: Nathan Dawson

Itís important to plan for your financial future beforehand so you have idea of what to expect. Once you get married, most newlywedsí open a joint checking/saving accounts

Below is a list of 4 easy steps to take when determining your financial future.

Step 1-Determine your net worth

Net worth is the difference between assets and liabilities. Make a list to figure out your net worth, make a list of all the things that you own and assign approximate values to each one. Then make a list of all your debts. Subtract these two numbers and you will have your net worth.

Step 2- Family accounting

You will need to decide who is going to manage your accounting. Is one partner going to manage the finances or will this be a shared responsibility? Are you going to choose to handle the finances independently, if not you will need to create a system of whose going to pay the bills.

Step 3- Set goals

Statistics are showing that 95% of senior citizens canít afford to retire. Set goals and start saving for your future today. Create short-term goals and long-term goals. Make sure when you set your goals that you are actually striving for them so they should be adjusted to your spending lifestyle

Step 4- Plan for adjusting your finances once married
