Falling in love is a wonderful thing and getting married to the person you love is even more wonderful. However, there are a few things that you should do before you walk down the aisle. And no, we ain't asking you to take a road trip here!There are a far more important things that you need to check off, know and ascertain before you say 'I do'. And the first things to rank on your to-do list is to talk out a few important things with your partner ahead of the wedding. If you are at a loss of words or ideas on how to get the conversation started, here are a few ideas that should get you talking.
Think kids are always a part of the deal? Think again! There are times when you might/might not want kids and your partner might have a different want altogether. To avoid relationship from going sour then, it's good that you plan your family - when, why, why not, if yes, how many - even before you marry. That way, you will know what to expect and when to expect.
Working or not - it's important you discuss money with your partner ahead of the wedding. Money not only makes the world go round, but your relationship too. Please decide in advance who is going to pay the bills, entertain guests, what kind of policies would you take up, what kind of bank account will you have, the nominee – everything.
It's important to be open minded and honest when discussing family. Be very clear about your wants, priorities and capacities. Talk if you would want to stay with your in-laws/separately ahead to avoid problems later.
