{Aisle Say by Candice}: After you say ‘I do’…

Now it's time for your ‘happy ever after’! The gauntlet has been laid down before you and your handsome ‘knight’ as your spectators now stand back to observe how the REALITY of marriage slowly creeps into your fairy tale. There is a huge difference between a wedding and a marriage and many couples feel a harsh shock as they crash back ‘down to earth’ after all the romantic enchantment.

Your armour for this challenge is to be equipped with realistic EXPECTATIONS. We all have them but they lie dormant in our sub-conscious mind and then expose themselves in moments of anger or frustration. Many relationship books highlight that unmet expectations are the common denominator in many arguments.

To increase your chances, you need to define and explore your assumptions about one another and what you intend for your marriage together. For example: If your partner really doesn’t want to have children but you’re just ‘hoping’ they will change their mind after the wedding. Making presumptions is a big mistake and important factors (like having children) must be clarified before you walk down the aisle.

You should have your ideals and GOALS lined up because this will determine a happier forecast for your marriage. Along with respect, love and good communication, this becomes part of the foundation for a strong partnership. Happy unions also require individual and joint goals, spontaneity, fun and wonderful experiences and achievements to look forward to. These all form the glue that will keep you together and get you through the rewarding quest of marriage.

Tip for the Bride-to-be: A Pre-Marriage Course is the perfect platform to discuss, share and learn about many relevant topics. You and your Fiancé will gain the knowledge and skills you need to create the successful, happy marriage that you want. If you missed out on this beneficial opportunity, it is not too late to complete the course as newly-weds. We all deserve a ‘happy ever after’!
