Introduction:There are many important things that you should do before accepting a wedding proposal. Do not just jump into marriage. Here is a list of the top five important things to do before accepting that wedding proposal.

  • 01

    Money

    People should always discuss all money matters before accepting a wedding proposal. It should be decided well ahead of time who will be making the money along with who will be handling the money.

    There is always one person who should be dedicated to managing the money in any relationship. This person would be the one who will need to be strong and say whether it would be alright to splurge here and there or not.

    Both people should know how they stand as far as having enough money, etc, but only one needs the permission and trust to make the final decisions on money matters.

  • 02

    Chores

    It is also quite wise to discuss who will be doing the chores before accepting that wedding proposal. In our society, most men just assume that the woman will be doing all of the chores.

    It is a good idea to start off right in any relationship. Decide together if the woman will be doing all of the chores or not.

    Many women complain throughout their lives that their husband never does any work around the home, and yet, the husband just assumes that it is all her work. Do not let yourself get into this situation. This may cause problems for your entire married life, if you do not lay down the law before accepting that proposal.

  • 03

    Children

    It is really important to discuss having a family before accepting a wedding proposal. You may think that this is not important, but it really is. One of you may want to have many children, while the other may not want to have any children, ever.

    This can really disrupt a marriage. It would be horrible to get married just to find out that your new spouse wants exactly the opposite of what you have wanted and dreamed of for your entire life.

    Pets are obviously not as important as children, but it would be wise to also discuss and agree upon the possibilities of owning a pet along with what kind of pet to own.

  • 04

    Forever

    Forever is a long time. Way too many people jump into their marriages too quickly these days. They do not consider having major discussions before accepting their wedding proposals. This can lead to having a divorce on down the road.

    It is really important to discuss things like your hopes and dreams. Hopefully, you have the same desires in life. Make sure that this really is the one that you really want to spend the rest of your life with.

    Discuss life behaviors with each other before accepting that wedding proposal. Do not forget about discussing all of the important things that might end up ticking you off later on throughout your marriage. Things like drinking, smoking, friends, going out, entertaining, vacations, honesty, celebrating your honeymoon and your yearly anniversary, trust, love, and respect.

  • 05

    Final Thoughts

    While making your final decision on whether you should accept that wedding proposal or not, be sure to discuss where to live. Getting married is one thing, but moving across the country is another.

    Surely, you do not want to end up living without your family and friends just because you decided to get married unless this person is really worth it to you. Not only that, but discuss whether you prefer living in an apartment, some huge house, or if a small house would be just fine.

    Remember that people change over the years and that things in our lives do not always come out perfectly. Be sure that you really do want to share your life with this person no matter what, and be willing to accept minor changes in your lives that will be due to marriage.

    Good advice. There are so many changes that happen after someone gets married. It is always best to discuss things before the big day and before you say yes to a wedding proposal.
