As a young family, there are some planning things you need to think of. You really need to take a lot of intention to think about these things and many people don't. You don't need to plan -- And plan is a significant word. There are really five main areas that you need to think of as a family. That's, the house you are going to buy; kids, how many kids you are going to have; where they are going to go to school, and college; weddings; and retirement. Those are the five big things because they all affect each other.
