Every youngster to be married or just married, Watch out for these important things in your married life, especially if you are marrying from a conventional Indian family.
When to have kids?
Am sure you figured out that for yourself. It can be quite irritating when all the relatives and close friends keep asking you about the ‘good news’. Well, the good news for you is that you shouldn’t succumb to their pressure, but instead discuss with your partner and reach a decision on when to have your child.
Respecting Others Beliefs
It’s possible that you and your partner have beliefs in complete contrast with each other, especially spiritual. You could be following a different religion, might be an atheist or agnostic, and it’s important that you respect the beliefs of your partner. People can be quite attached to their religion and mocking at their practices or rituals could land the relationship in serious trouble.
Your Relation with In-laws
In-laws can be anything from helpful to horrible, depending on how you handle them. But if they are closer to your age, in most cases they could be good company and someone nice to talk to. Ideally, you don’t want to distance them but then you don’t want them to be indulging in your personal affairs a lot either..

Is that all? Well, the list goes on, but if you can at least take care of these, chances are good that you will have a fruitful life.
