Settling down means you are taking your life into a big chapter.
And marriage is not something you could throw up once you’ve become fed up of your partner.
‘Cause the truth is…
In marriage, there’s no turning back.
If marriage did not work, you may file a divorce to end your marriage.
But in some other countries like here in the philippines, it is not yet fully been approved.
‘Cause it is said to be that our country is a pro-family.
They believed that, legalizing a divorce in our country would mean encouraging many citizens to have broken families.
Well, that’s their say.
Which is why, the process of annulment (or to void the marriage) takes a lot of time, effort and of course, money.
People think that marriage was an easy task so long as both individuals are head over heels (or madly deeply in love) with each other.
I know, I am in no position to say this, but let me share with you some of the things you need to consider before settling down.
Aside from having the man of your dreams (e.g. financially stable, single with endearing personalities, etc ).
Getting a stable job.
Being able to find your own self.
Being able to achieve your dreams.
Most of all,
Being physically, emotionally and financially ready…
You need to remember these 3 golden rules before deciding to live with him.
By tradition especially here in the philippines, a man needs to ask a permission from the family of his woman before living together.
Meaning to say, he needs to marry her either through a civil or a church wedding; or can do both.
‘Cause I honestly believe that…
If a man has a high respect to you and to your family,
Legalizing the union must also be his top priority for it is the most important family tradition regardless of religion.
Not only that, it also serves as a blessing from above (God) if both of you will have a legal union.
The man must be able to buy you a lot (or a land) to prove to the family of his woman that he can be a good provider in the context of marriage.
Not just having the qualities of a family man or a husband material.
On that note, a good provider is the epitome of manliness.
If the man is not capable of providing for the family, it is better to live single.
‘Cause a marriage without sustainability will not survive.
For obvious reason, married life means you are ready enough to create a family of your own at your own house as husband and wife.
In my own perspective, size doesn’t really matter. As long as there’s enough space to start a family of your own, that won’t be an issue.
The most obvious one is of course, a house.
Something we could proudly say that we owned it.
C’mon guys, don’t you think that we have the right to manage our own house the way we want it to be?
Please pardon me for I have to separate the lot from a house.
Not everyone can easily build you a house compare to buying you a lot.
In most cases,
Men offered you a lot for thinking that they can magically build a house with you in an instant.
Not even realizing that building a house takes time which needs to be taxed and insured (not mandatory but still essential) as well.
It can be taken away from you and your new family at any moment.
If you have acquired these 3 significant factors, I guess everything else will follow.
What do you think, Ladies?
Anyway, what for you are the things that will make you change your mind in order to settle down?
