It's easy to get caught up in the romance when you find that special person that you want to spend the rest of your life with.

But before you say "I do" Lee Hancox (Head of Channel and Segment Marketing at Sanlam) advises that you and your partner have a crucial conversation about money.

It's important to get frank about finances. Speak to each other about your financial situation currently... what debt do you have, are there any family members that are dependant on you... set all those expectations up front.

It's also a time to discuss your future financial goals.

What are the things that you want to achieve as a couple? Do you want to buy a house? Do you maybe want to have kids in the future? Do you want to go on holiday?

Unpack the practicality.

Have you both got retirement plans in place? Does it make sense to both move on to one medical aid? What does your household budget look like? What are the money rules that you want to abide by as a couple?
