What to consider when you’re about to walk down the aisle.


You're planning your big day! A dream wedding involves detail: the photographer, the venue and, of course, the perfect dress.

But pause a moment to consider that your marriage will have an impact on all areas of your life, including your finances.

You need to carefully evaluate your marriage contract and related issues and ensure your partner is financially cared for and protected should something unforeseen like disability, illness or death come your way.

“Sometimes couples get married and fail to discuss their financial and personal expectations,” says Clive Hill, a legal adviser at Sanlam. “These conversations are crucial to understand your future spouse’s expectations.”

Apart from seeking advice from a professional adviser, Hill suggests you consider these five critical factors before walking down the aisle in order to protect your future in marriage.
