    How to say "I do" to financially-wedded bliss

    

    TORONTO, Aug. 8 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:  The cake has been cut, the presents opened and the honeymoon
           pictures developed. But while you're still basking in the glow of
           the big day, your bank account might not be.

           With the bills for the caterer, photographer and florist piling
           up - not to mention the mortgage payment - you might have just
           come to the harsh reality that while you and your spouse were made
           for each other, you're not as compatible when it comes to money
           management.

    WHY:   It's no secret that money is one of the major factors leading to
           marital strife. Instead of working together from the start to
           determine mutually agreeable financial goals, many couples hide
           from the issue and sweep it under a rug.

           With August being the most popular month to say I Do to marriage,
           according to Statistics Canada, now is the time for couples to
           discuss and plan how they will make the transition from "my
           money" to "our money."
