Important conversations to have prior to tying the knot

As you prepare to walk down the aisle, it's important to have open and honest conversations with your future spouse about the marriage. Having these discussions, some of which can be difficult, will help you see how the other person views different topics. Here are some important discussions you should have with your future spouse before saying "I do."

One of the most important discussions to have centers around the finances. Who will work? Will both of you work? Who will handle the money? Is your future spouse a spender? Do you like to save? An honest discussion about the finances can save quite a bit of heartache from fighting in the marriage.

A conversation about children is always one that should come prior to saying your vows. You don't want to get deep into a marriage and have a fight because your spouse does not want to have children. Find out now if children are in your future. You can even put a clause about it in a prenuptial agreement to protect yourself.

If you do have children, figuring out ahead of time how you will raise them is important to your marriage. Will both parents take them to church? Will religion even be a factor in the marriage or family? This cannot be overlooked if you plan on having children.

Preparing for marriage does not only include picking the cake, DJ, flowers, dress and venue. It also includes having discussions about the topics in this post. If you seek to create a prenuptial agreement in Canton, an experienced attorney can help.
