This stage of life usually involves some asset growth and the need to merge two separate budgets. We'll remind these clients of the importance of living within their means as they save for the future. We'll help with planning whether to maintain separate or joint accounts, costs associated with having a family, and we'll go over the assets and liabilities each person brings to the marriage. Ideally we would have started these conversations with an On Your Own package for each person, but new clients will benefit too.
