Angela Merritt, a Marketing Specialist at VanBuskirk Companies, joins us this week on the podcast to discuss what it looks like to handle finances jointly as a couple. After you have married, not only does a couple need to learn how to live together, but also juggle learning how to budget and each other’s individual spending habits. It’s a big process whether you choose to share bank accounts or keep your own individual accounts. One thing to remember is that this is a learning process, it won’t always be perfect and it takes time to learn the amounts that you can put towards different expenses. Month after month you will get a better grasp on what is realistic and the habits that you want to continue in your budgeting.

We strive to help all of our members feel secure in their budgeting and their finances on a day-to-day basis.
