Is Marriage a Business Deal?
My sister who was recently married 2 years ago says to make sure you do research on him. Check his family history. Take premarital counseling. Make sure this is someone you can see forever with. I told her she makes its seem like a research project. She said, "Oh but it is and that's just the beginning."
My sister told me there will be plenty of things that he will do that I will absolutely hate. She says, you will have petty arguments over the dumbest things like putting the ketchup in the refrigerator. But your union has to be strong enough to succumb these obstacles. If you care about your mate you will be willing to work on your union. Its hard-work and the road isn't a straight shot. You will hit curbs, twist and potholes throughout the journey of marriage.
