With todays real estate market continuously on a down slope there are more newly married couples considering the great responsibility of purchasing a home. The reason that such a large purchase is being considered now in a fresh marriage is because the housing market is considered a buyers market like never before. This will allow many newly married couples to save on their purchase of a home that would typically not in their price range for several years into the marriage. After all getting married and buying a new home all within the same year has never been heard of until lately with so many couples being aware of their finances and how much they would be able to save by owning their home. That is why it is important for newly married couples to go over their finances before they get married so that they will know exactly what they are dealing with when it comes time to pay for the wedding and possibly making a home purchase all within the same year of their marriage. Although doing these things back to back may seem like a lot to many people if the two of you plan correctly it can be done and make your life a little simpler as far as finances go.
