There are a lot of things you need to put serious thought into before you get married. I mean, it isn’t a decision you should take lightly! So you know you’re really ready for marriage and you’re not just day dreaming about having a big party, read on for things you need to think about:

 

Do You and Your Partner Want Kids?

 

You and your partner should be on the same wavelength when it comes to children. If one wants kids and one doesn’t, this is going to cause huge problems down the line. It isn’t usually a problem that can be resolved either. Make sure you know you both want the same thing!

 

What are Your Reasons for Wanting to Get Married?

 

Honestly assess your reasons for wanting to get married. Do you just want a big party with all of the attention on you? That’s the wrong reason to tie the knot. You should want to marry your partner however and wherever, as long as you’re together. Sounds a little cheesy, but that’s what it’s all about.

Where Do You See Yourself in 5,10,15 years Time?

 

If it’s with your partner by your side, great! If you’re struggling to see a future with them in it, this could be cause for worry. If you’re not happy with them, you can’t just expect them to change. They more than likely won’t, and you’ll be stuck in an unhappy marriage. Marriage doesn’t just magically change people! If they want to start looking at wedding rings but you’re not happy, you’re going to need to be honest.  Many couples will actually do couples counseling, before they head to the altar, and have some of the best marriages. 

 

Where Do You Want to Live?

 

Do you want to live in different areas in your town? In different parts of the world? If so, you may need to come to a compromise. Ideally, you’ll both be flexible and want similar things so you can settle somewhere happily together.

 

What Sort of Wedding Do You Want?

 

If one of you would love a small affair and the other one wants a big shindig, you’ll need to compromise or not have one at all. This wedding needs to be suited to the both of you, not just one of you. Why would you want to get married knowing your partner is unhappy with the day?

 

What Will You Do if You Split Up?

 

You might think you never will, but just think about it for a second. Anything can happen, even if you both tick all of the right boxes for one another. What will you do if you split? Who will have custody of the kids? How will you split your belongings? Have a serious conversation so you know they’re willing to be mature about things whatever happens!
Only when you’ve considered and discussed all of this should you tie the knot. Getting married isn’t for some couples at all, and that’s fine! You don’t have to wed just because everybody else is. Do what’s right for you and you’ll live a much happier life. Thanks for visiting!
