In an idyllic world, a couple meets and falls in love, marries, has children and lives happily ever after. Unfortunately, this scenario isn't the reality for many couples. Relationships are complex and even the most stable or seemingly happy marriage can end when a couple grows apart or experiences problems caused by infidelity or changing life goal.
In many cases, individuals who plan to marry fail to discuss or address important matters. For example, if the couple has children, who will act as the main caregiver. Another concern that's often not addressed relates to financial obligations and debt an individual may bring to a marriage. These types of matters ultimately impact both spouses and should be discussed and decided upon prior to walking down the aisle.
