the finances of (not) getting married | Teachers Talk Money

I’m not planning on ever getting married. This isn’t a financial choice for me, but a personal one. I’m not going to go into too much detail about why today (if you want to see that video, let me know in the comments). However, this choice does make financial sense in a lot of ways, too. So today I’m going to do a deep dive into the finances of getting married and, conversely, deciding not to get married. My hope is that anyone planning on getting married weighs the monetary impacts of their choice, and anyone not planning to get married can feel some affirmation. Enjoy the video and let me know in the comments if there are other financial aspects I didn’t mention 🙂
