What You Need to Discuss Before Getting Married

What You Need to Discuss Before Getting Married

Getting married is quite the big step, as you probably already know. It is a wonderful and exciting new journey you’re embarking on, and with that journey comes a lot of responsibilities and compromise.

Make sure you discuss the following topics with your partner before getting married to avoid any unresolved issues or future conflicts.

Children: Discuss whether you want to have children directly after marriage or if you would like to wait for a while. Also talk about how many children you wish to have.

Finances: Talk about the financial issues that you have in mind, your future plans and accounts.

Start a savings account: Get into the habit of saving, have a joined bank account and save at least 10% of your income.

Know each other’s families: Meet family members and get to know them.

Go to the doctor: Both of you should get all the tests needed before you get married.

Career: Is your partner well settled in his/her work? What are your future career plans and goals? Do they interfere with each other? Can you compromise your career?

Past relationships: Trust is the most important thing in a relationship, if you or your partner had a past relationship, talk about it openly to get both closure and trust.
