I have only been married for a few years, but I will say that I am so grateful we went through Pre-Cana. Some of our friends laughed at us, but truly, it was a great exercise. it forced is to think about financial issues we may not have thought about – what percentage to dump in 401k, mortgage rate, health insurance costs – and how all of these (and other) line items affect our bottom line – and our household.
I mean, now that we pay out thousands to daycare, it’s not that relevant, but still…every penny counts!
