The major reasons why many marriages fail is not because marriage is a bad thing or because there is no love between the partners but because a lot of people get into marriage blindly. Many people these days don’t seek to learn and understand before they move to that level of marriage.
So before you get married to anyone, you must ask all the right and necessary questions, get every possible information and be in the right frame of mind. Many people just run after looks which is one of the things that least matters in marriage.
Here are top things everyone should know about that partner of yours before you take the step into in marriage.
Dependent: “How many people will depend on you by extension of their dependency on your partner? in some parts of the world, like Africa for example, it’s believed that when you marry someone, you marry their family too; so you have to consider the amount of people you might have to take care of, if it’s something you can handle, fine, otherwise, why do it?”.
Indebtedness: “Due to certain lifestyles, a lot of people end up incurring so much debt, that if you marry them, you’ll have to take care of them too; although people also incur debts because of perhaps the little challenges they’ve been faced with but either way, you must investigate and interrogate your partner very well to know what you’re up against, so you don’t end up being taken unawares”.
Career path/prospect: “Your husband/wife’s career path and prospects directly affect yours, you should think about how resourceful their career is, travel requirements and how it’ll affect your job; is your spouse ambitious, and is he/she a go-getter or a slacker?think along these lines and you’ll be able to at least see which direction you are headed, you don’t want to end up with someone who will slow you down”.
Spending habits: “What are their spending habits like?are they heavy spenders or little spenders?you have to know, and be sure you guys align and if they are heavy spender, then you have to devise ways you can save for them since they can’t do it alone”.
Medical status: “Marriage is bigger than love, it’s about taking decisions you can live with years from now; no one wants to have to regret their marriage, so do the right thing, and it never gets to that point so before you get married, go for a blood check to be sure you’re compatible and also, infections and diseases are an issue”.
