Things you NEED to know before you get married!

posted by Karla Cantrell - 

I am...I admit it...STUPID LUCKY.  I walked into a country bar...looked up and spotted the man I was going to marry...period.  I loved him immediately.  So much so, in fact, that I SHOULD have slowed my roll and let my brain catch up:)  But, even though there were a few bumps, I couldn't be happier and 20+ years later, he's still the love of my life and my best friend.  Like I said, STUPID LUCKY.  But these are the things you NEED to know before you let yourself say "I do".... ~Karla 

Things You Need To Know Before You Get Married - This may be the month for love, but a little reality check is being offered by therapists.

“Today” asked marriage therapist Liz Higgins to offer advice to couples planning to wed. Thee are a few things you may not have even thought about that she brought up.

Before you walk down the aisle, know these keys:

  • Your spouse isn’t going to complete you. You need to balance alone time and couple time.
  • Be aware of expectations. If they are too high, you are in for a bumpy ride.
  • You won’t always feel “in love.” It’s a great feeling, but reality steps in.
  • Know your partner’s finances. If you don’t mesh, there’s work to do.
  • Learn how to handle conflict.
  • If things get tough, don’t call it quits immediately. Marriage is hard work. Put in the time.
