9. Remember that it took your parents 25+ years to accumulate the things they have. Unless you're independently wealthy, as a newlywed couple you're not going to be able to afford leather furniture, a 4000 sqft home, a huge plasma TV, and a late-model SUV. Those things will come in time, just like they did with your parents. Too many newlyweds think they will be able to continue the lifestyle they just left - that thinking will cripple your financial future. Remember, you're newlyweds - you're supposed to be poor, and it's OK because you have each other. You don't need luxuries to make you happy.
