Newlyweds and finances

May 12, 2016 by Guest Contributor

According to a recent Experian survey, the majority of newlyweds say financial responsibility is a key quality in a spouse. Yet many neglect to discuss finances with their partner before marriage. Other factors unknown to newlyweds include:

  • Their spouse’s credit score (40%)
  • Their spouse’s annual income (25%)
  • Their spouse’s long-term financial goals (31%)
  • The amount of their spouse’s student loan debt (31%)

As newlyweds face a blending of finances for a promising tomorrow, lenders can help by providing personalized credit education to start building strong relationships with these potentially loyal, creditworthy customers.
