When we are young, and in love, it seems like time runs past and before we even notice, you will find yourself engaged, and after a while, married. Many people know what this feels like, and most of them say that they wish they’d known the things to do before getting married, even if they love their spouse. Even if the marriage works out and you find your soulmate, many people regret “not living” before getting married.
Here are some things that women should do before they get married, and here is why they should do them. Keep reading to find out more.
Explore the world alone
If you have the means, this is one of the things you should do before you say “I do” to your partner. Traveling alone is much different than going with friends because you get to decide what you want to do, see, and eat. The feeling of you exploring the world on your own is the one you should feel before you step into a marriage. You will cherish those memories forever.
If you don’t find yourself before you get married, you may end up losing yourself in the marriage. When you get married, your values and ideals with become one with your spouse’s, and you should know what those are before you get married. You cannot be half of a whole if you don’t know what half you are, and you may end up settling. So before you start married life, try to get to know and find yourself.
Travel with friends
It is not too late to do this step even if you are married, but if you are not and have the means to do so, you should take some time to travel with your friends. You can also go with your partner, because you may not have time once you get married, especially when the kids start coming around (you will not be able to travel alone until they are all off to college).
List your non-negotiable
You have to know yourself well enough (call back to step number two) to say, “No, I do not want to do that.” Marriage is made of compromises, but there should be things you should never compromise on. Your partner should have them too. Since you cannot read each other’s minds, you should list all the non -negotiables before you get married and see if getting married is the right thing to do.
