Comments on "6 Things to think about before tying the knot"

I like the last part about knowing how to show love to your partner. My husband and I are reading "The 5 Languages of Love" and it's helped immensely. We now know how to lovingly communicate with one another and show each other that we love each other. So important!

I think it's really important to discuss heated issues before tying the knot. Finances, for instance...make sure you're on the same page and decide beforehand how you're going to divide everything up (or combine). is another hot issue - so discuss expectations before entering into marriage. The more you've discussed, the better your marriage will be.

We live in a culture focused on instant gratification without looking towards the future. I really appreciate the point of defining certain words that a relationship is based on. When I do get married, my commitment will be forever and my spouse needs to be on the same page.
