Before You Say “I Do”… 5 Things To Ask Yourself

Have you identified and communicated your needs and expectations? 

Don’t assume that your mate should know how you feel, what you need, or what you want. Starting a family right away may be #1 on your list, but is it even on his list?. In your mind, you’ve already decided that you’re going to take the first couple of years off work to be a stay at home mom, but does he know this? Couples that communicate openly and effectively tend to have stronger, more successful marriages. And some conversations about things like kids, money, and religion are essential to have before you say “I do”.

What is your main reason for wanting to get married?

Often we get married with good intentions, but are they really good reasons to get married? Wanting the wedding of your dreams is fine, but what happens when the honeymoon is over? Are you more focused on the wedding or the marriage?
Make sure you’re not getting married, just to be able to say you’re married. The goal is not only to be married, but to be happily married.
