I have never get married. What are preparations we should do before marriage? It's not about the ceremony,but about living together with your partner. Thx for sharing your experiences.

you need to be sure you have similar ideals, plans for the future, and that any hopes you have that you don't share, you are willing to comprimise on. my partner wants children and I don't. however he would rather be with me and not have children than be without me. and if I did become pregnant by accident, then he knows I would keep the baby, so it's not impossible that he may have children with me. just not something we would ever plan to do, or rely on happening. beyond that, obviously there's the legal side of the ceremony that needs sorting out. giving notice, ensuring you are both free to marry, all the correct paperwork availaible etc.

well i think you need to be emotionally, financially and domestically prepared. getting married is not just a bed of roses just like to remind you that roses has torns. you need to be mentally ready too. i am married for 7 years then gave up. pack my bags and me and our 4 children left him. i tried all that i can but in married life one cant just do it alone it should be you and your partner. i am single for 7 years now and still trying to work hard for my children.
