1. Definite Decision

The first thing you have to consider before getting married is to assess if you and your partner’s decision is definite. Are you sure you both want to marry at this point in the relationship? Aren’t you simply being pressured by your families, friends, or even your partner? These are important questions to ask before jumping into marriage.

Make sure that you also take time to carefully come up with a solid and mutual decision of when to marry and what your non-negotiables are in the union.
