The Most Important Things To Know Before Getting Married

Updated on September 15, 2014

Love is great, wonderful, amazing and there is not much until you start dreaming of how is to spend the rest of your life next to the person you are in love, but as you know in life not everything is in pink colors, so you have to look at all possibilities and to think very well before making the important step. Whether you are a man or a woman, do not get married if you:

1.Afraid of loneliness

People reach a certain age and begin to think that they have to marry because "it's normal" and they will not stay alone anymore. Such a marriage is clearly destined to failure and many unpleasant discussions will occur soon between the two partners.

Stop thinking that the age of love has nothing to do with this. It can hit you at 40 in the same way as at 16.

2. Not sure about your feelings

Feel something, but you're not sure it's love. You care about her/him, feel great together, but you don't like everything about him/her. If you're not sure about your feelings, do not take any decision or you might regret it later. You can just live for a period of time together, it will show you better how to be.

3. For a child

It can happen to every couple: an "unscheduled" child, but that does not mean necessarily that you need to get married. There are many unmarried parents who live perfectly without being married. I don't think you want your child bear arguments, discussions and any other reproaches later.

Marriage must be done in love, not obligation.

4. Word of mouth

You know people around can discuss a lot about your relationship, but that does not mean you have to listen to their opinion. Couples can live together for 5 to 10 years and only after this period of time can decide to get married ... or get separated. It is up to you how you feel about this, so trust only your feelings.

5. For money

Money does not bring happiness, even if at first you think like that. Think how will you wake up every morning for the rest of your life, with someone you can not bear, but you have to accept him/ her only for the material benefits. I am sure you can accept it only at the beginning but what will you do after. Not so pleasant situation. So, it is very important what do you really appreciate in that person, or what are your real values.

      Hi Dreamreachout! Glad to see you! :)

      I agree, people just should make time for the relationship and take into consideration everything in order to hacve a happy live together. Anyway, we know the saying "happily ever after" probably exists only in fairy tales. But I think with some efforts people can create something almost similar... :)

      Dreamreachout, thank you for reading and commenting. Your opinion is appreciated!
