Every girl, as we grow up spend some time everyday imagining how our life would be as we hit the almost 30’s, along with which comes the constant nagging for marriage and frequent reminder to get settled in life.Well yeah I know there’s a lot of zeal and excitement about reaching the same and alike milestones, but it is necessary to keep in mind that these phases will further have no re-occurrences in life. So enjoying and being conscious of what everything leads to can be actually very beneficial in the long run of life.
Listed below are some of the things that every women needs to do before actually pitching herself in to tie the knot. I don’t necessarily mean that you can’t do them after marriage, but during these pre-marriage can help to liberate, bolster your bonds as well aid in discovering parts of you that you never knew actually existed. So here goes the pre-marital to-do list,
1) TRAVEL WITH YOUR WOULD-BE/SPOUSE
It is easy to get along with someone for a couple of hours or only for the weekend. But it is necessary to comprehend if you can spend few days with your future spouse which can help in revealing what each other is actually like, along with being able to manage issues related to travel, choosing what to order and what to do etc. This can also help the girl in knowing if the guy she is going to marry is a sexist jerk or a true gentleman.
2). LEARN TO COOK
It is good for the girl of the household to learn how to cook not because you will have to become somebody’s Sanjeev Kapoor or that you need to act like a dutiful daughter-in-law but for the record, it is always good to be independent & it is nice to be able to reassure yourself that you can fend well in the kitchen.
3). HAVE A BLOW OUT WITH YOUR SPOUSE
Fight at least once with your spouse and make sure it’s a big blow out.
Then make up. Just to make sure you can make up after a fight with ease without any further ado.
4). FOCUS ON YOUR EDUCATION
This is the time to actually focus on your education not that you can’t do it later but it’s always good to spend your time pre-marriage on gaining at least one (even several) degrees.
5). DO SOMETHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO DO
Indulge in something that you always wanted to do but was afraid of what the society might say like, smoking or sky diving or driving a motorbike etc. these things will help to bring out the rebel In you and thereby make you a better and a balanced person.
6). SUFFER A MAJOR HEART BREAK
Suffering a major heartbreak will only make you stronger as an individual which is why heartbreaks before marital life is good and will also make sure that you don’t take love for granted.
7). FOCUS ON YOUR CAREER
This is the perfect time to decide what you want in terms of a career which is why it’s good to focus on your career pre-marriage and this will also help you steer clear of what actually you want to do in life.
8) SPLURGE ON YOURSELF
It will be a good boost to your self-esteem if you splurge in now and then, especially before your marriage as it can totally change your outlook.
9) REMEMBER TO CLEAN UP YOUR ACT
It is the most important on the to-do bucket list pre-marriage as cleaning up your act like working out more, getting up early etc. can aide in making you a better person for your partner as well.
10) DECIDE ON HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT KIDS
Before marriage take it out how you feel about kids with your spouse and decide on whether you want an issue as soon as possible or if you can work on this later as this will help to stabilize your marriage in the long run.
