Which one of you will do the bill-paying and will you file taxes jointly or separately? By The Associated Press MILWAUKEE — It doesn't come tied up with a bow, but one of the most important packages to consider at wedding time is the long-term financial one. "It may not be as romantic as planning the ultimate reception and honeymoon, but the business side of marriage is something that soon-to-be-marrieds should not neglect," says Joan F. Kessler, a family law attorney with Foley & Lardner in Milwaukee. Agreement about how the marriage will be financially managed is especially important in two-career marriages and for those who have been married before because these people are likely to have accumulated assets, pensions, and houses, she points out. The couple should agree how they will manage their financial affairs not only in the marriage but in the event of divorce, death, or an inheritance. "Open communication is the key. They should discuss what assets each partner brings into the marriage and how long-term and day-to-day economic matters will be handled," Kessler says. These are some items to consider: • Decide how you will file taxes. Kessler advises doing the arithmetic for filing jointly and separately to see which way offers the lowest tax bite. But be aware than each partner will be paying more than when they were single — the "marriage penalty." • Agree about how you'll manage your accounts. Joint accounts are fine if both agree on saving, withdrawals, etc. Also decide if one partner will be handling bill-paying and track finances or if each person will take some responsibility for paying certain bills. • Negotiate agreement about priorities to be set on savings and money to be spent on non-essentials, or "fun" money. This is one .area that's especially prone to disagreement among couples, Kessler says. • Watch out for credit cards, she advises. Young couples living on a shoestring can find card offerings that arrive in the mail almost every day very alluring. Decide how many cards you will have and how you will use them. • Make a will. It may seem premature, but it's important if there is any significant amount of money or assets involved, be- cause a will can minimize the tax bite. It's doubly important if one or both partners have been married before, because obligations from.a previous divorce judgment may have to be factored in. • Decide how you'll handle financial is-il sues, involving children in a second mar? riage. Among considerations are allowances, discipline, child support payments to and from former spouses, and household expenses. Kessler points out that stepparents legally have no obligation to pay bills or make guardianship decisions related to stepchildren. Many of these issues can be ironed out in advance through prenuptial agreements, Kessler says. A properly structured agreement is advantageous for the couple during the marriage or in the event of divorce or death. Plan a visit to Overland Park - to shop, to dine, to be entertained.
