One of the best things you can do financially, newlywed or not, is to put money away for short-term emergencies and for retirement (you need to do both). By having money deducted before it hits your checking account, you won’t ever miss it.
Remember that the earlier you start saving and the more money you can put away now, the better off you’ll be in retirement. Make a pact with your spouse to start building an emergency fund and contributing more to your IRA and/or 401(k).
