If you have a ring on your finger, you no doubt know of the big things you and your to-be should be talking about before you tie the knot: Where will you live? How many kids are you thinking? Who’s the spender and who’s the saver?
That you need to be chatting about those things during your engagement along with figuring out your centerpieces and wedding-day menu always begs repeating—but we love this list of things you should be discussing before marriage because it also includes some of those seemingly smaller discussion points that inevitably rear their ugly heads if not hammered out before you begin your life together. You know, like whether or not you’ll have a TV in the bedroom and how prepared you are for the knock-down, drag-out fights you will be sure to have in home stores like IKEA. (If you’ve registered already, you know what we’re talking about.)
Take a look, and if you haven’t hit on each and every one of these points, maybe open a bottle of wine tonight and cover what you’ve missed.
