5 Things every couple should talk about before marriage
Most of the times marriages fail due to miscommunication or misunderstandings which can be avoided if the couple had an open conversation about their future and if both are on the same page, it a. Many a time, the couple play the game not as a team, but as competitors in different teams. Let's see the five most important things that a couple should discuss, before marriage.
Talk openly about your debts to your partner and your future plans on how to manage them. Your financial status should be well learned by your partner and hiding will not do any good in the future. How are you both planning to manage the budget after marriage? Bank accounts, deposit details, investments, etc too can be discussed early.
When do you both want to expand your family or do you really want children. Is there any known medical condition or are you planning for adoption. Are you planning to share your parent's home or move separately? If moving, do you plan to take your parents with you? Sex is also an important factor to talk about as whether you both are ready to be in monogamy or in an open relationship.
Division of Labour
Whether you both are working or not, household chores can be shared by both the partners either by duty or on a daily basis. If you hate cooking and can manage washing dishes, you can delegate the cooking to your partner and declare him to be the master chef and take up dishwashing or laundry chores.
Dream home or be a tenant for lifetime
If you have a dream of your own home but your partner is planning to rent out, that can be a tough decision to make. Furniture, television in bedroom or not, dishwasher or hand washing, air conditioner or cooler, 2bhk or 3 and the list of things go on and on for a couple to start the life. Your ideas should be well disclosed to avoid over expectations in the future.
You both should know any diseases you have or medications you are taking. Both of your lifestyles should be known as one cannot be a fast food fan and other a fitness freak. Medical insurances and other matters should also be revealed.
