So you are married and the parents just cannot stop asking about future grand kids? You on the other hand, are still confused. Marriage is a big commitment but having a kid is actually a bigger commitment, babies might look really cute from a distance but all that cuteness goes away when they start crying and pooping all the time. Having a baby restricts you from doing a lot of things, you make compromises and your priorities change.
So before having a baby and make a bucket list do everything that you would want to do to enjoy your life to the fullest. Here are some of our suggestions:
Go see the world with your better half, discover new places and eat exotic food. You would never be able to relax as much while travelling when you have kids. Even a trip to Disneyland would sound scary with the over excitement and the sugar rush.
Travel to the mountains together or choose a beachy holiday, you could also go backpacking together which would be a completely terrible idea once you have kids.
2. Know each other’s bad habits
When you are just married and living with each, it opens up gates to so many more things you never even knew existed. It is like trying and adjusting with a whole new roommate, except now, you are bound with one and you cannot change him.
Understand each other, know each other’s bad habits and decide which one of them gets to stay and which ones just have to stop. Know what drives each other crazy, how to compromise on this and when to take a stand for yourself.
