“A happy marriage is about three things: memories of togetherness, forgiveness of mistakes and a promise to never give up on each other.”
Have you started hearing the wedding bells, yet? You may be suffering from the throbbing heart and numb feet or you may be finding it hard to hide the glow on your face. Either way, you are in love for sure and marriage is a natural progression when two souls are in love. “A good marriage between a blind wife and a deaf husband.” Are you in sync with this saying? I’m not! How long can you pretend to ignore things? It is better you get few things and confusions settled before you actually decide put the ring on your finger.
Listed below are few aspects that you need to watch out for before you decide to get hitched-
1. See If You’re Able To Handle Fights
The difference of opinion and heated debates are a very natural thing when you are in a relationship. However, the way you handle your indifferences is important. No marriage is easy-going, but it’s well worth fighting for. Studies have found that the way couples handle their indifference determines whether they’ll get through the fights or not. Considering the conflicts a phase that will pass away with time is the biggest mistake of future-spouse. Whether your argument lasts for a minute or takes weeks to get resolved, see of you are able to handle them gracefully. Go to the next step of the relationship, only when you are sure about this aspect.
2. Discuss The Future Plans
It may sound clique, but it is the best way to gear up for the future progression. Meet the friends and family of your future spouse. It is very rightly said that marriages are not just the connection of two souls, but of two families. Discuss your future plan with each other. See if you both agree for the same. It is better to set the future goals in advance instead of facing the consequence later. Right from buying the house to having a baby, everything should be discussed before taking your affair further.
3. Make Sure That You Are Settled
Love your spouse more than you love your career hobbies and money. That other stuff can’t love you back. This is true, but you won’t be able to inculcate it in your relationship unless you are at a peace of mind. It is not just the Alexander McQueen Heels and Michael Kors’ dress that matters, but instead of relying on your partner, you should be in a position where you can afford everything that you want. Hence, it is highly recommended, especially for the ladies to have a settled career before taking the huge decision. Your personal life will suffer if you are not at ease in the professional front.
4. Are You On-board With Your Bucket List?
Having a bucket list for the future and your expectations from life is not wrong, but marriage involves two different people. The fact cannot be denied that every individual is different and you may not be on board with you on different aspects. So, instead of doing all the planning’s yourself and figuring out the ways to make it work, it is better to share the feeling with your soul mate. Instead of expecting too much from your partner sees if you can work the plans out together.
5. Are You Ready To Take Up The Responsibility
Marriage is not a bed of roses; it’s a huge responsibility and a commitment for life. The fairy tale stories of the princess and her prince charming that you’ve been hearing all these years may be enticing, but the reality is different. Don’t just get carried away with the pomp and shows of the extravagant affair. Ask yourself is you are ready to take up the responsibility that follows and the commitment that is the requirement.
