Marriage is a sacred bond that is supposed to last a lifetime. Hence, it is important that you think through things that matter in detail and plan it well before taking the plunge. If you are planning to tie the knot soon then here are 5 things to consider before you start your marital journey:

Compatibility

When you are about to get hitched, it is important that you check beforehand just how compatible your partner is with you. Though opposites attract, but if you are absolutely incompatible then it’s a sure recipe for disaster.

Share your dreams

Marriage is a journey of life taken together. It makes sense to share your life goals with your partner so that you both know where your respective priority lies.

Talk about kids

Whether you want children or not? if yes, how many, how soon? all this should be discussed before you get married. Remember, each person is unique and there may be a case when you want to have children but your partner might not. May be you wish have certain career goals or financial aims that you want to achieve before having kids. Discuss all this beforehand to avoid any confrontation later.

Family responsibilities

Marriage is not only an amalgamation of individuals but also their families. Make it clear to each other that what are the family responsibilities on your shoulders. This should not come as a surprise to your partner post marriage.

Budget:

Given the Indian culture, with marriage comes huge expenditure. It makes sense to discuss and decide what kind of wedding you both want, how many guests you want to invite and the financial plan that suits both sides.
