Deciding to get married in a very huge step in life. Even though you have been with your partner for a long time, there are still certain things you need to discuss before exchanging vows. The prospect of marriage excites many people but it can be very disappointing if you are getting married just for the sake of it. In case there are certain issues that don’t sit right with you, it would be important to look into them before it’s too late. Marriage is a lifetime commitment and it would be sad to take chances with the rest of your life. Here are a few important things to consider before tying the knot:
How your partner deals with stress
Life is full of difficulties and stress is an inevitable part of it. Knowing how your partner deals with stress before getting married is very important because it is something that will happen often and will intensify if you decide to add kids to the mix. Is your partner one to shut down and give you silent treatment when they are stressed? Do they become violent and throw things around when angry? Do they yell? People are different and have their own way of coping with life’s hurdles. You need to understand when your partner is feeling stressed and ask them what they need to get through whatever they are dealing with. Talk about how their reaction affects you and what you can do to change that.
Whether you like their personality
Maybe your partner is an introvert and needs some alone time occasionally or they are extremely social and they are always going out or having people over at the house. You need to know the kind of personality your partner has and decide whether you can put up with it or not. The worst thing you can do is end up with someone whose personality throws you off every time. This is a recipe for disaster and you will end up having many arguments due to your very different personalities. Another thing that people take for granted is being able to sit in comfortable silence with your partner. You don’t have to keep talking if there is nothing to talk about.
The kind of relationship they have with their family
When marrying someone, you have to consider the fact that they are part of another big family. The parents, siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and other extended family will be part of your life. The relationship your partner has with their family will eventually have an impact on you.
