(Must Read) 4 Things You MUST Know Before Getting Married

Before you can begin your journey into marital life, you must have acquired some important skills to prepare you and help you weather the storms that comes with your new status. Before you can be called a graduate in any field of study, you must have gone through school and passed the course in flying colours. So also, before you can begin your journey into marital life, you must have acquired some important skills to prepare you and help you weather the storms that comes with your new status. Here are four important pieces of marriage advice that you need to know before you say “I do”:

1. Emotional self-regulation: Little children often throw tantrums, cry, or even hit their siblings. Adults, on the other hand, mostly live their lives in the calm zone. The good news is that adults who get overly emotional, especially with anger, can learn how to overcome their anger tendencies. If you find that you raise your voice and get angry more than once every several months (or get so angry that you say and do hurtful things), you’ve got some important learning to do.

2. Communication: Some of the qualities that are essential to any marriage is talking tactfully, especially when the issue is something that distresses you and listening in a way that sustains cooperation. Talking in a way that’s complaining, critical, or otherwise hurtful will get you in serious marriage trouble. Dismissing what your partner says, negating what you hear with “but”, or ignoring instead of digesting what you hear, is sure to cause extreme marital problems.

3. Conflict resolution: All couples have differences no matter how in love they are. Successful couples know how to start with a “his-way” and a “her-way” and end up with an “our-way” that they both feel good about. That’s true whether the issue is a simple one, like what movie to to see on Saturday night, or big issues like where to live, how to handle money, and how to keep your sex life passionate.

4. Positivity: Each time you share a smile, laugh at your partner’s jokes, agree with a comment your partner said, express appreciation, thank your partner for something, or express affection, you are offering “drops” of positivity. The more drops you give, the happier you both will be.
