Engagement is an exciting and often very busy time, with a lot of decisions to be made. It’s inspiring to be looking ahead to the next stage of your lives together as a couple. As you make choices about the wedding, though, don’t forget to check in on “the state of your union.”
Take this opportunity to work on your communication skills and ensure that the foundation of your relationship is strong. You may find that this is a time when differences in your upbringings or long-standing family conflicts become more noticeable. The months before your wedding are also a good time to make sure the two of you are on the same page about “the big stuff,” such as finances, home responsibilities, and childrearing.
Our experts cover all these subjects and more in our Engaged section, so check out what we have to offer.
