Getting married should be one of the most exciting times in life. It can also be very stressful. Aside from all the planning for the big day, you and your future spouse need to come to an agreement on quite a few important topics. These include having children, where you will live, how you will share holidays with in-laws and even how credit cards will be used or held. One important tip is that you should hold joint credit cards.
When one spouse of a marriage has a credit card in his or her name only, he or she is able to use it without the other spouse knowing. They might not use it for everyday items such as food, cleaning supplies or to pay bills. Instead, they might use it to make frivolous purchases. This debt can pile up fast and can cause a lot of resentment between the two spouses.
