1. Morals & Beliefs
The things you stand for. This has to do with what you believe is right and whether you would be able to be with someone who opposes what you stand for. It’s whether you would be able to be with someone who valued life differently than you. Morals and beliefs are highly relevant when it comes to long term relationships. It’s what you believe in that can make or break a relationship and a marriage. So this is crucial to discuss before committing in that way.
Does the person you love want children or not? Do you want children? Child bearing is a relevant topic in all the lives of those who especially do or don’t want them. Need not find out the man or woman you love doesn’t want children after months or years of being together. Be sure that you’re on the same track of mind.
As a married couple, as individuals, there is a fundamental need for security. Our world is ran on money. Without money, there is unfortunately no way to have what you need. Nothing is free. Building a life with the one you love may involve a significant amount of money; especially if you desire children. I am not saying a couple needs to be wealthy, I am saying that you can’t live without financial security.
Make sure to discuss your sexual needs with the one you’re with. Different people like different things. You may not be sexually compatible. Sexuality also correlates into your morals and beliefs. When you’re truly married, you’re not going to be with anyone else sexually. Are you deeply enough in love that you wouldn’t want anyone else sexually? What are his or her preferences compared to yours?
