7 Things Every Couple Should Do Before Getting Married

In the current new-age that we live in, the concept of marriages and weddings is not the same anymore. Even though the traditions are the same and followed diligently, the dynamics are different. Moreover, there has been a huge change in the way couples pursue their marriage relationship. There is an increase in working wives and mothers, nuclear families, long-distance marriages, and separately staying couples. These complexities further make it difficult for couples to manage their marriages. Due to this reason, there is a constant increase in the divorce cases and couples are separating from their partners. Therefore, it becomes very important to discuss various marriage dynamics with each other for enjoying a happy married life. 

If you are planning to get married to the love of your life or have started thinking about marriage, then this would be a very exciting time for yourself. But instead of blindly getting married, make sure that you discuss the below points with your would-be so that you can easily manage any hiccups in the future:

Work-Life Balance: 

You as a couple must discuss your workday schedules, work environment, work opportunities, etc. to understand each other’s job demands. It is very important that you both get comfortable with the working hours and work pressure of your jobs. A better understanding here will help you in adjusting your marriage life and any trust issues or insecurities arising due to work-related trouble can be easily managed. 

Health and Expectations: 

Being healthy is important for a happy marriage. Hence have a candid discussion with your spouse about any allergies, ailments, mental health history, stress issues, previous surgeries, etc. Related to your sexual health discuss issues like Shighrapatan, dry vagina, etc. that could lead to an unsatisfactory life. You should also discuss sexual preferences, fears, contraceptive measures, etc. that you or your spouse wish to take in the short term period. And above all, take treatments whenever necessary. For example, if you are suffering from PE, take shighrapatan medicine, if you are suffering from dry vagina, consult the doctor. These issues if not worked upon, can cause big issues in your marriage life.

Children: 

The couples should discuss having children between themselves without allowing any third-party interferences. It could so happen that you would want children but your souse doesn’t. Moreover, you should also have an idea about a tentative time when you both would want to have a child. If both of your views are a mismatch, then it will be difficult to stay happy in the marriage. Family planning is a crucial part, don’t ignore it.

Expenditure & Money:

Quality time together:

Travelling together is a good way of improving your compatibility with your partner.
