In addition, there is a marriage movement going on where marriage coaches, educators and experts everywhere are providing ridiculous amounts of information, tips and skills for engaged couples to help prepare for their marriage. In fact, I’ve worked with couples who say they’d never have an unsupervised marriage again. When you prepare and have someone to help navigate and negotiate, it makes things better and easier... you know what they say, “work smarter, not harder!” It’s also true for marriage!!! Now there’s no excuse, because the information is out there. You wouldn’t go sky diving without learning how right? ..So why would you EVER commit to a life of something with someone with out learning how? Don’t do it!!
6. Don’t ask enough questions
Asking questions in your relationship is one of the most important and inexpensive ways to build a solid foundation for you marriage. Talking about roles, household responsibilities, finances, parenting, social activities, in-laws, intimacy, sex and several other important topics can make a world of a difference in the future of your marriage.
Hopefully, you can learn from the mistakes of many others who have taken the path you are about to begin. Remember though, a mistake is NOT necessarily a bad thing. In order to truly experience love in it’s purest form, you must be willing to take risks. If you never take any risks, you’d never make any “mistakes.” And if you never make any mistakes then you wouldn’t learn about the right way to do things for you! So embrace life and don’t beat yourself up if you make a mistake, just make sure you learn something from it to take with you!
