Being engaged is one of the best things that a couple can experience. Taking the first step into really knowing your spouse is a very important task. Unlike what is usually portrayed in television and movies, there is a lot more to being a couple than gazing into each other’s eyes. To make your relationship everlasting, just follow this advice.
Keep Going on Dates
Just because you are engaged does not mean that you should stop dating. Dating shows that you are still interested in your partner and want your relationship to be as intimate as possible. Make each other feel special and important, even through the chaos of wedding planning.
Rely on Each Other
Lean on your partner for advice. Involve each other in the essential decisions and important moments of life. Contrary to popular belief, relationships are not a 50/50 effort, they are 100/100. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, as no one has all of the answers. Just remember to stay calm and not take unnecessary stress out on your partner.
Get the Family Involved
Make sure that you are both properly acquainted with each other’s family members. Since you are going to be family soon, it is going to be important that you make a good impression with your in-laws. Ask for their advice on things like how to plan the wedding or where to find the best value home. Remember that a marriage is not only between two people but it is also between two families.
Take Your Time Planning
Planning your wedding and the rest of your lives together is a very stressful experience. But don’t worry about it too much. Take your time in planning and always remember that it is not about having the most extravagant wedding from the most exotic venue. It is about spending time with the one you love and making the best memories together.
If you see any obstacles coming your way, always remember that you’re in this together and you will both find a way to solve the issue.
