Married Mondays

Estimated Reading Time:
I was bored this last week and kept putting off all the errands I had to do; waxing( don't get me started), buying soap (we're down to the last shards)  and toothbrushes( half the bristles fell out of mine two months ago), dentist appointment ( maybe that's why I need to see a dentist?), blah blah blah.

Seriously, who has time for such luxuries? You want to know what I was doing instead?

I was googling finances with the husband. #notevensurewhy

I guess any newly-wed would do that though huh? Just like they would have the ‘do I change my last name?’ conversation. It’s just one of those things that have to be discussed, like who takes the trash out (obviously the husband won) or who does the late night ice cream run (husband won again). #evilchuckle

Anyway, I googled. And I saw these frequently searched questions. I kinda laughed and kinda shot daggers at my husband on behalf of all womankind. Don’t worry ladies. I gotcha. #chicksbeforedicks

I had to find proper data though so I tried to research married couples finances from all around the world. It's always better to get a wide range of opinions and pick from there. I didn't have a time frame on the articles I was researching, I mean come on - money is always money. 

In case any of you guys are getting married soon or have just gotten married, here are a list of articles I found super helpful. Some are just funny though to help beat the Monday blues. #moodymondays
