Premarital financial counseling

Does anyone here have experience with premarital financial counseling? Where does one find a reputable professional to speak to? Even over the phone. I have a situation I would like to talk out. Thank you.

  • Hi Gold Tiger !

    I believe any marital counselor can discuss finances. When my husband and I attended our pre-marital counseling session, our counselor included a financial section (it was general counseling that touched on a number of different things). Are you using a wedding planner? If so, they may be able to recommend a counselor. I hope someone here can weigh-in, but it may be local recommendations. You can also try looking up local counselors and reviews, which may help point you in the right direction.

    We aren't professional counselors, but we're happy to help if we can! :)

      Faness Thank you! Even learning that marital counselors can discuss finances is new to me and helpful. I was actually thinking of speaking to someone on my own first just to get my own thoughts and observations straight in my head. I live in a large urban area and wouldn't know how to vet a professional found through an online search. Even what to look for and whom to look for when searching for counseling. I see many comments about relationship and budgets here on YNAB and it has gotten me thinking.

    • Gold Tiger Counseling was definitely a positive experience for us - it set some ground expectations going into marriage, which is great to have when newly considering finances (and other important things) with another person. I think talking to someone on your own is a great way to test the waters and see if they'll be a fit for what you're looking for in a counselor. Good luck finding one! I hope you'll update us on how it goes! :)
