What Financial Roadblocks Have You Faced in Getting Married?

Wedding rings and money

We’ve been behind the hood working up some new material for Debt Free Muslims. One of the challenges facing us today is financial readiness for marriage. This covers a whole gamut of issues from debt, how much you earn, saving enough to get married, figuring out how to talk to potential spouses or in-laws, budgeting, and just kind of figuring out what to do.

We’d like to hear from you about what financial issues come up in the course of seeking a partner for marriage. What types of financial questions have you been asked? How did you respond to them? What questions have you asked someone that may have thrown them off? If you’re looking to get married, do you feel financially ready? What things do you need to know that it seems like no one is really addressing?

We’ve put together a little survey below to help get some feedback. As always, you can email us or leave a comment as well. We’re working hard on some exciting new projects, but we really need your feedback to make sure they’re addressing the problems you’re facing.

So if you can take out a couple of minutes to do this, we’d really appreciate it – and please pass this survey along to a friend who is looking to get married.
