Things to consider before and after you tie the knot

Marriage comes with lot of responsibilities and that excludes wedding preparations. There are far more serious things to consider after the wedding celebrations are done.

Cebisa Mfenyana, Marketing Manager -Marketing and Business Development at Metropolitan Retail outlined some of the marriage admin that needs the couple’s attention after they are married.

Firstly, she says the newlyweds need to make sure that their wedding is registered in the first 3 months in order to make the marriage legal.

Listen to the full conversation on the Pippa Hudson Show:

  • In the event of your spouse passing away, you could end up not getting anything from the pension funds and policies if you not registered.
  • Have conversations with your partner on money issues
  • Let the company that holds your medical aid and pension know that you have changed your status
  • If you have children, it actually helps in determining the maintenance of your children

In case you were planning to buy a house Cebisa Mfenyana says that you need to have a life cover ensure that it covers your financial responsibilities should anything happen
