1. Money management

When you get married all of a sudden your money becomes ‘our money’ this means you have to be very conscious about how you spend and on how you save.

2. Your health

It is important to take care of yourself even after marriage because there is someone else just as important as your mom who needs you to remain healthy.

3. Your social status

You are now ‘us’ or ‘we’ and seen as a pair rather than an individual

4. Goals

As a unit your goals will be shared for the improvement of your new family.

5. Loyalty and commitment

You might think you were committed before, just wait until you are married and you finally change everything to your married name…… the level of commitment you feel is surreal. Here’s 4 things you should discuss about commitment.
