Before taking the big leap, slow down, step back and ask yourself some questions. A lot of times we are caught up in all the excitement of the engagement and wedding plans that we forget to reflect and honestly ask ourselves the most important questions. Marriage is such an important venture and funny enough we don't take it that seriously at the beginning. We would consider several questions as we move along. You are welcome to chip in as much as you like and oh, I would love to hear your stories too.
So the first question is
Why do you really want to get married?
People get married for so many different reasons, ranging from companionship to money to love, lust and the list goes on and on but do you know that your reason for getting married can greatly influence the way you treat your marriage, in some cases the marriage can completely break down if you marry for the wrong reasons. Again what is wrong is relative right? Trust your instincts, if it feels wrong then it's probably wrong. Look at it this way would you still laugh at his/her jokes if stripped off everything, money, beauty etc. you know how the jokes you used to laugh at become suddenly annoying. I believe it is good to be beautiful and/or rich or marry someone that is rich and/or beautiful but they say beauty is only skin deep, will that pull you through difficult times? being feeble beings anything can happen at anytime. Being realistic at this time is more important than ever. Think hard and deep and most of all be true to yourself and for whatever the reason for getting in be sure you are convinced you will be happy on the long run but do think about it.
