The Expectations Talk

And so, before stepping in, it is very much important to be able to talk openly, about anything to everything. It’s important to convey your expectations regarding things such as finances, household roles, intimacy, children, the holidays, etc.
Planning The Wedding, Together
Planning a wedding is a very stressful job and you might be of the opinion to delegate it to a planner or your friends/ relatives. Well, don’t. Take your wedding as the first project of you as a married couple and try to get your partner in it to define it.

You’ll not only learn more about your partner during this time but it’ll also give you time to judge yourself as to how well you do when put in with another person (loved) in handling tough situations.
Some Time Alone

You might not realize but getting some lone time before marriage can put you in with a lot of ponderings and a great lot of contemplations. Use these to better define your upcoming life.
