Lucknow: We all want that happily ever after that we read in books. The perfect marriage that is filled with all love and bliss comes with some understanding, which is the base of any relationship. But when we meet our potential partners we usually don’t know if we share that kind of understanding. To know if you two could have a future together, discuss three essential topics that can be helpful for you in finding a future partner. Here are 3 things that one should discuss with their partner before getting married in order to spend a peaceful and happy life afterward.
While some of you may think it is too awkward to discuss money before marriage, what you can’t deny is the fact that it’s an important part of life. You need to solve your money matters before you decide to spend the rest of your lives together. Discuss how you both will tackle things, whether or not you will split up the bills, and does it matter if you choose to work or stay at home post-marriage. The more you discuss, the clearer things will be. So, kick the awkwardness and talk about money.
If the two of you are working and your job doesn’t allow you to work from home, it becomes important to discuss who will relocate. While it may be a tough decision, it is important to figure it out beforehand so that none of you have to take a decision in a hurry post-marriage. Evaluate all the pros and cons, do your math and make a wise decision. Make sure none of you is doing it just for the sake of it, do it for your and each other’s happiness and convenience. If it’s difficult to make a joint decision, request your organisation to work from home for some time. This will give you ample time to think and make a decision.
Joint or Nuclear Family
Just like any other thing, it is important to discuss whether you two will move out to a new home or share the house with your in-laws. Give it a deep thought, see what works out for you and accordingly decide for yourself and your partner. Most people want privacy and may want to shift to a new house and some may want to enjoy a big family. In any case, it has to be your call. So, instead of fighting about, try and understand the other person’s views, appreciate them and then put your’s across.
