Getting Married: 6 Things You Need To Know

It feels like the right time to be in love with all the fanfare surrounding relationships these days. There are lots of sentimental tweets and Facebook messages that makes us go all ‘aww’. Instagram pictures tell tales of beautiful moments shared. The whole world is given an all access pass into the lives of lovers and are allowed to be envious of whatever great times the new age couples share. We could very well be living one of the fairytales as men are becoming more creative with proposals. It is almost like a competition. Everyone wants to stand on a rooftop and see who can scream the loudest to the world that their relationships are the best.

The new trend is also great for business, the competition is just the perfect recipe for money making. We have proposal specialists (the ones that can plan proposals even if you want it in the moon), we can’t forget the photographers and make up artists now, can we? These ones create those still perfect moments that are the subject of discourse on various forums. It even gets fancier with some couple having to travel to particular locations and do special wardrobe shopping for this. We are just getting used to this trend and wowed by the creativity involved in the numerous pre wedding pictures when I stumbled on a pre wedding video.  Can you believe that? A professional video documenting one’s love journey? Well…
 I love love stories, I really do, I just feel really blown away by all these fanfare and I beg to be the voice of reason in the midst of all these.

Seeing as being in love has become a very serious business ( so we are made to believe), I propose that even more hardwork should be put into staying in love. You need to take your marriage as serious as your wedding.

It is great that you are trying to make your day very special. You should also bear in mind that there is life after the wedding, so please spend wisely.

Don’t be deceived by the number of likes on your pictures or by how many blogs reposted your love story. It is not good enough that you like a great couple, be sure you are compatible.

If you need a referee during your arguments, your followers on social media don't exactly fit into those shoes. Meaning you need to keep your business private and avoid giving front row access to strangers that don't care. 

Don’t despise the words of the elders both spiritual and physical. By all means, go for counselling.

While you are at the business of getting everyone’s admiration and okays, don’t forget to commit your relationship and future home into God’s hands.

Like I mentioned earlier, I love love and I wish you all well in your ventures.

Stay blessed.
