Wedded Wednesday-- Before the Wedding
A couple of days ago, the hubby and I were talking about an acquaintance that we knew was getting divorced. There were several reasons as to why they were getting divorced, such as them living in different states and the major one is that he wanted children and she did not. My first thought was, why didn't they discuss this before they got married? Maybe they did and one of them changed their minds. There are certain things that I think that you should discuss before getting married. I kinda of look at them as contract negotiations. These negotiations allow the other person to know what to expect or how you feel on the issues that you discussed. This is not to say things can not change or new issues can not come up, but it allows you to have some discussion on the standard things such as children, where you are going to live or how you save your money. I know that sometimes divorce can not be avoided, but sometimes I think that if some of the simple things were discussed before the wedding it might not be necessary. Just my two cents. What are your thoughts?
