I am sorry to hear about your grandfather's illness.
I am glad that the two of you are getting married especially since she is pregnant with your children. I hope you two have a fun filled wedding.
It is time to sit down with her and start making plans for when the kids arrive. Once the kids arrive, live will not be the same any more. My wife & I don't have twins but we do have three kids under the age of 8. Life is very busy and full.
I am not trying to scare you, but I want the two of you to really give this some thought.
Your wife is going to need help with the twins when they come. Don't be surprised that your wife will be placed on bed rest around week 20 to 25. She is going to need your help even more. This will make it much harder to complete your studies.
Finances. Yup, nail them down now, the sooner the better. My wife and I waited until we where 8 years into our marriage to start creating a real budget for our family. Over the years this has caused us plenty of grief and heated arguments. Many of which we could have avoided. There are several really good finance / budgeting programs out there. I would personally stick to the christian based ones. Do the research and make an informed decision.
Best of luck and I wish the two of you many years of wedded bliss.
