How to prepare yourself for Marriage

Undoubtedly, marriage is one of the most beautiful, responsible and a major step in a person’s life- be it a man or a woman. Women obviously face a greater sense of insecurity and anxiety as they need to step in a different territory all together. Getting married brings with it an added sense of responsibility and is not only about dating and love making. Thus, before taking this major plunge in life, you need to prepare yourself emotionally and psychologically.

Right age and right partner are the two main pillars on which a marriage can be established. Choose the right man for yourself and marry at an age when you are mentally as well as physically prepared for it. Marriage is not an instant 2 minutes decision. It is a well planned affair which needs to be well thought of and analyzed as your entire life depends upon it. With growing number of unhappy marriages and divorce cases, these things become all the more important. When we talk of preparing yourself for marriage, it is more in the sense of mental preparation.

You need to first understand your own expectations from a marriage before moving ahead. Share your feelings with your partner, your thoughts and views and most importantly, check the compatibility factor. Communication and sharing of feelings are the prime ways of preparing yourself for marriage. After you think that you are fully prepared for marriage, then only you should move ahead.

Be open with your partner and be your own true self. Don’t try to impose a false image to impress your partner as both of you need to be aware of each other’s true personality before moving ahead. Talking about relationships, family backgrounds, bringing up, schooling, friends, responsibilities and even sexual relationships can help you understand each other.

More than love, it is understanding and a bond of faith and trust that moves the relationship forward. Lastly, you need to be prepared to accept someone in your life and accept the fact that you no longer have an independent life; with marriage and love, comes certain roles and responsibilities which sincerely need to be followed.
