Marriage is one of the biggest decisions of your life, to decide to spend the rest of your life with one person, to share everything with them and to give them all of you. It's kind of scary but it's also pretty exciting. We all have to get married at some point or the other, it's a part of life like everything else that takes you forward and helps you grow.
I'm not going into the depths of marriage right now, that would be a different article altogether. I'm simply going to quote a few questions you need to ask your partner before you decide to tie the knot with them.
1. Have we discussed whether or not to have children and if the answer if yes, who is going to be the primary caregiver?
This question is one of the important ones. Having children is a big decision because they can change your life. Now whether they change it for the good or the bad is completely up to you.
2. Do we have a clear idea of each other's financial obligations and goals. And do our ideas about spending and saving match?
I've seen a lot of strong relationships go weak when it comes to the topic of money. Financial management should be a two-sided thing in which both the partners are happy and satisfied with each other. If one of the two decides to go on their own, that's when the problems start happening. So keep a clear idea about this before you go on.
