What Fights Should You Have Before You Get Married?

What Fights Should You Have Before You Get Married?

It’s a fact: even happy couples fight. There’s just no way around it. If you really love each other, you’ll take your frustrations out in an argument from time to time – but before you fret, consider that these arguments can actually help the relationship succeed. Here are the discussions (or even fights) you should get out of your systems before you tie the knot:

  • Do you want children or not? How many?
  • What boundaries do you want to set with your in-laws?
  • How are you going to handle religion?
  • How will you distribute the dirty work?
  • What debts are we going to have to take on?
  • How often do you want to have sex and during what time of day?
  • How will you deal with needing space?

Getting these discussions out of the way can really clear up some hairy arguments down the road. The last thing you want to do is have your partner expecting sex every single day when you’re a twice a week kind of gal!

The “how many kids” argument is something that my ex boyfriend and I had ALL the time, it got more intense the more years we had under our belt. We were always on different pages; he wanted kids, and I didn’t. I think he thought if he kept bringing it up I would eventually change my mind, even though I have never had that desire to harbor a little alien, and he knew that. While the wasn’t the main reason we broke up, it was a good part of it for me. He’s now married with two kids and I’m happy he found someone who shared his same thoughts on kids, cause it sure as hell wasn’t going to be with me.
