Marriage profile continued:

The third  part of the marriage profile is to ensure that money and finances do not become an issue that is above the relationship. It goes without saying that the worship of money can become addictive to the point of dividing the family over issues that should not be elevated to the level of idol worship. Never spend above your income for daily living expenses. Large ticket items e.g., a home and auto are the exception if the cash flow is within earnings. That makes it a necessity to have a budget from the beginning.

Make sure that each partner agrees with all major decisions no matter what the decision is. That is, major purchase, vacation, travel, gifts, friends, church affiliation, to name a few, that have an impact, or influence the feelings of either partner must be mutually agreed to.
