You will regret going into your thirties with no money behind you – even if it’s only a little bit of cash, make sure you have something to put towards your future together and keep the wolf from the door.

Pay off your debt

Work hard to get rid of any student loans, credit cards and overdrafts so you can start with a clean slate and get your credit score back up for such times when you’re looking for a home to buy.

Seek your dream jobs

One of you might need to take a step down to look after kids so go and get the jobs you really want and make the most of them while you only have that and each other to think about.

Live together

If you can’t afford to purchase a house at least live together for a little while to see if you’re compatible under the same roof.

You don’t want to get a mortgage and then find that you can’t stand to be near each other.

Get Kinky

When kids come along you might not have as much time for the physical side of your relationship.

Your sex life will inevitably take a hit so have it now as often as the mood takes you.
