Things that HAVE TO Be Discussed before the Big Day

Getting married is a very big, life-changing step you will make. Aside from the actual Big Day and the party that will ensue, you also want to make sure you and your fiancé are heading off into a marriage built on a foundation you both agree with. Like it or not, this also means you have to have some serious chats before signing the marriage documents – and following, we have gathered the things that HAVE TO be discussed before the Big Day. Read on and find out more.

  • – Children. Do both of you want children? How many of them? How will you handle caring for them when the time comes? Will one of you take a part-time job to be able to stay at home with the children, at least for a little while? And, probably the most uncomfortable questions: how will you handle signs of infertility if they appear?
  • – Name. Discuss who will take whose name – will you do it, following tradition? Would you much rather prefer to keep your own name? Or opt for a more modern compromise, such as hyphenating the name? It’s not the most pleasant discussion of all, but it surely is something that needs to be done.
  • – Financial aspects. Will you create a shared financial account? What kind of debt do you both have to pay off? Talking about money is never comfortable, much less when you’re already dreaming up your wedding day – but if you haven’t talked about this until now, do it and make sure you are both on the same page.
