"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure", the old adage reads from Benjamin Franklin.
For better or worse. In sickness and in health. To love and honor... Vows soon-to-be newlyweds recite on the day of their weddings. But really, what about premarital planning? Brides and grooms spend countless hours discussing wedding guests, flowers, menus for the reception -- few devote significant time to the all-important conversations on issues that will affect their entire married life including finances, children, healthcare and estate planning.
Talking about these topics is not easy. But these kinds of conversations are essential to ensuring a firm foundation for a happy and healthy marriage. The key to a happy, healthy and long-lasting marriage appears to weigh heavily on honesty and careful planning. Discussing vital topics such as children, money, family relationships' and dynamics, prior relationships will lead couples to a stronger union. You can live together for years but getting married changes the legal aspect of your relationship.
