In case you are planning to tie the knot with your boyfriend, we have compiled a list of experiences you must have with him before taking this plunge. Hope, these would help you get a fair idea of what it would be like to share a roof with him for the rest of your life.
Have a BIG argument
It might sound frivolous but it is really important to have a big argument with your partner once in a while. This surely is not a pleasant experience; it will not only help you sort out your differences but will also prove how strong is the foundation of your relationship. If your partner loses his temper quickly or tries to run away from the situation, marrying him might not be the best option for you. But if you manage to work out a solution together, you are all set to take your relationship to the next level.
You might have gone on weekend trips together but going on a longer vacation will help you understand your companion better. It is a great way to test your compatibility with him, and know each other better. In fact, you will get a better idea of how your partner reacts when he steps out of his comfort zone, and how you take decisions together in a completely new environment.
We are sure you do not want to marry an irresponsible guy, right? Whether it’s growing a kitchen garden, taking care of a pet or an ailing family member, try sharing a few responsibilities together before tying the knot. You would understand how he handles the situation when it comes to sharing responsibilities.
What about experiencing financial stress?
According to experts, a lot of newly-wed couples struggle to overcome the hurdle posed by financial issues. It will be a good idea to spend a month together where you both pool your finances. See how you plan your expenditure together, pay bills and manage the other finance-related stuff. It can be a challenging task, but it would be worth your effort. You will also get a fair idea of each other’s spending habits and the areas you both need to work on.
It may not be possible in every case (that’s why we have suggested to travel together), but living together before getting married can be an eye-opener. You will get to understand him better, and see how you support each other in rough situations. If everything goes well, it’s the time to decide the day and venue of your D-day!
Discover a hobby together
Instead of going on lunch or movie dates, spend time in a hobby class together. Yes, you read it right. Pick a hobby or activity that you both have not tried before and you might end up exploring a completely new side of your future spouse. You will see how he interacts with others and responds to a new situation. If he bears a I-know-it-all attitude or is reluctant to accepting changes, you might have to deal with a stubborn spouse after marriage.
