TBD Tips: Travel With Your Partner Before Getting Married
You met this guy at work who coincidently, was also your cab mate. Regular, small talk turned into Whatsapp chats and weekend hangouts. Before you know it, you guys are in love. You've never felt so strongly for anybody before and your partner seems just like the man any girl would want to spend her life with. You finally decide to take the plunge and get hitched! Hold on!
Mark Twain once said that there is no surer way to find out whether you love a person than by travelling with them. TBD nods in agreement and advises you to travel with your partner before you plan on tying the knot. Here's why.
- Travelling with your partner will actually make you realize you if you have found a partner-in-crime. People tend to lose their inner child in the midst of monotonous work schedules and hectic weekdays. What's it like to find someone who laughs as insanely as you? How will he behave when crammed makeshift tents replace cozy beds? Will he be as lively during the trademark financial crunch at the end of the trip? Will he be as happy to make lifelong memories as you are? By the time you pack your bags to return home, the answers to the above questions will be clear in your head!
- Compromises are as important in travelling as they are in life. From the stage of planning till the time when the trip ends, you guys will come across a number of situations when you have contradictory opinions about a certain thing. It's all about learning to compromise and respecting each other's views.
- Things are never just rosy during a trip. Travelling gives you an opportunity to know how your partner would behave when things don't go as per plan. Would you still have each other's back after hours of foot journey or would you just snap at each other? It's time to find out with a fun trip.
- Travelling is perhaps the best way you can grow as a couple. Hold the hand of your significant other and face your fears. Be it the fear of heights, fear of water or the silly fear of a roller coaster ride, conquer them all and make memories :)
Travelling is the stage for the show called life. If you guys are not on the same page during a week-long trip, do you really think you can walk together for a lifetime? Maybe it's time to throw off the guards and explore a new place while rediscovering your relationship.
