As we all look to plan for the year ahead this month, for many people a New Year’s Resolution is more than “Dry January” or deciding to do a little bit more exercise every day. For many, 2019 will be a significant fresh start, a time to look forward and a time to manage their affairs.
Couples swept up in the twinkling lights and merriment of the festive period, will look forward to planning a future together in 2019. This may mean a wedding, a new property, or even the start of a family. It can be an exciting and even magical time, but it is important that couples look at the practicalities surrounding marriage and any change to their circumstances. From pre-nuptial arrangements to mortgage agreements to Wills, make sure you are covered so you can enjoy your future together and your family is protected.
On a less joyous note, for many years the media have dubbed January as “Divorce Month”. Although perhaps not statistically true, often the dawn of a New Year can mean that people are resolved to make changes to their lives. Christmas can often be a very stressful period for families, when financial strains coupled with claustrophobic family time can sometimes result in couples reaching breaking point.
