Why this is important
When living our busy lives as a couple we focus on our short-term future ("Getting that higher paying job", "moving into that lavish apartment", etc.) without thinking through how major life events can drastically change the course of our financial future. For example, over 80% of couples in the US do not think about how having a kid can drastically alter their finances. They end up having to prolong their careers and retire late to account for the unplanned costs incurred. This can easily be avoided by planning these important life events early and putting aside funds to meet expenses or compromising on a few of these life events to optimize for an earlier retirement.
