9 Interesting Things To Do Before Getting Married

Do you remember the iconic "Ja Simran Ja, Jee Le Apni Zindagi" dialogue from the Bollywood movie 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge'? The dialogue gives us nostalgia about how Babuji allowed the lead actress to go, marry and live her life on her terms with her love interest.

At times people say that this was a movie and therefore, the actress was allowed to live her life, though the reality is different. But don't you think that it's high time when people need to realise that they too have the right to live their life as per their wish, especially before getting married?

In India, weddings are no less than a week-long festivity. Amidst this preparation and planning, people forget that there are certain things that need to be done.

If you are thinking these are making a guest list, packing gift boxes, choosing your wedding attire, going to the parlour, etc.

In such a case, your cousins and friends can help you in knowing if you are doing the right thing.

2. Have A Quality Conversation With Your Spouse

Since you are about to begin a new inning of your life with your future spouse, it is important that you have a quality conversation with him/her. Before tying the knot, you need to know each other so that you are well aware of each other's likes, dislikes, vulnerabilities, etc. Unless you don't communicate with each other, you won't be able to know if you are suitable for each other. Moreover, this will help you in developing a strong bond with each other.

3. Learn How To Cook

If you are someone who knows nothing when it comes to cooking then, it is advisable that you learn to cook some basic recipes. Irrespective of your gender, you need to know how to cook as it will help you in being compatible with your partner. Believe it or not, your partner will be more than happy to see you cooking food with ease. In fact, this will strengthen your bond over time.

4. Spend Time With Your Mother

If you are a woman, we bet, once you get married, you will miss your mom like anything. You will miss the way she cooks for you, chooses your clothes, supports you and much more. On the other hand, if you are a man, you may not be able to spend time with your mother like before. So before getting married, it is advised that you spend some good time with your mother. She is your mother and therefore, it is important to make her feel special. Let her know that you love her and will always be close to her.

5. Go On An Adventure Trip

It is not that you can't go on an adventure trip after marriage. Going on a trip before marriage can help you in knowing your inner self in a better way. An adventure trip will make you realise what you want in your life and how do you want things to be done. Not only this, but you will also be able to face your weaknesses, strengths and vulnerabilities. As a result, you will be able to evolve into a confident and better human.

Start by the one that seems easy to you and then you will feel motivated to fulfill other wishes.

8. Meet His/Her Friends

Meeting your spouse and spending time with him/her alone is not enough. You also need to know his/her friends. You may think of what's the importance of seeing his/her friends, but then won't you like to know those who are close to your other half? Moreover, this could be a good way to know more and more about your spouse. In order to do this, you can plan a lunch date, picnic or go shopping with them.

9. Travel With Your Would Be Spouse

Going on a honeymoon with your spouse after tying the knot is quite romantic and cool. But how about going on a trip with your spouse before marriage? At first, you may feel a bit shy and hesitant about going on a trip with him/her but then you need to think that this could be a golden opportunity to get to know each other. You will be exposed to each other's behaviour and vulnerabilities. This will further help you in deciding how things will go post marriage.

The major intention of doing these things before getting married is to find out if you are happy with your marriage. However, when it comes to doing things before marriage, trust us, the list can go on and on.
