Marriage is a very special bond that two individuals share throughout their lives. It is a connection that ties two individuals, who are destined to be together in a lifetime relationship. This holy union of the two individuals brings together two different cultures as well as two different backgrounds and spreads joy among everyone.
Marriage seems to only bring happiness and make life worth living when it is shared with a partner. Although, it is not easy to make a marriage work. It requires that the two people must know each other well enough before they get married so that in later stages of life, neither of them will regret upon their decision of marrying each other.
Be it a love marriage or an arranged one, the couple should consider all aspects about each other. Especially in an arranged marriage, where two individuals who do not know each other are expected to agree to marry each other. The two individuals should be given sufficient time to know each other. Things such as the likes and dislikes of each other are the most important ones to consider. Further, both of them should know what the other person frowns upon, how the other person handles any stressful situations, how would they react to each other at the time of conflict of opinions, how much right they both have to give their suggestions to each other at the time of important decisions and so on.
The couple before getting married should open up to each other and share every little detail with each other to avoid any problems later. Be it past relationships, good and bad experiences, how their parents raised them, how they want their family to be, etc. They should talk about the things that they want to pursue in future and should get to know what their future partner thinks about it and if there is any scope of disagreement, they should be able to handle it taking into consideration their betterment.
Marriage is a sacred thread that binds two individuals for a lifetime. Therefore, its sacredness should be maintained and respected by the two individuals and to accomplish that, they should know each other very well prior to getting married. This whole “getting to know each other” phase can be a beautiful experience for the couple and they can cherish this experience throughout their lives.
