My fiancee and I are getting married in a few days. We have a newborn on the way and are struggling to save up any money to buy furniture for this baby. We both have jobs and will both be keeping them throughout the marriage. However, going into this marriage he doesn’t save any money. He also has terrible credit. I save every penny I can and have a pretty good credit score. I know that money is one of the most common arguments in any married couple, but how do I get him to see that we really need to start focusing on this upcoming addition to the family instead of our growing DVD collection? I’ve brought it up to him before and he agrees, yet he hasn’t put any money into our savings account, while I’ve contributed over $400.
How can I help my fiancee realize that we need to save money without seeming like I don’t want him to spend anything?
