Wedding planners have been around enough couples to realize when a marriage isn’t going to work. If someone is being a terror while planning the wedding, that’s a bad sign. If someone is making decisions about the wedding without telling the other person, that’s also a lack of trust to start things off with. If the wedding planning seems to be focused more on spending money, showing off, or a way that the in-laws can get what they want, that’s also not a great sign for the future. When it comes to the wedding reception, if couples aren’t greeting people together, taking care of each other, or are more focused on getting drunk than enjoying the moment, that shows the party may have been a bigger priority.
- If your spouse is keeping secrets from you, for example, spending money behind your back without your knowledge, this is a sign of financial trust problems.
- If you are going to go into financial debt over the wedding, this will cause great conflict in your marriage and stress that could have been avoided, potentially leading to a divorce in the future.
- If your spouse does not take into account your own personal desires and needs, for example, if you believe in a certain dietary lifestyle or have a dietary need that the spouse does not accommodate
“If your friends or family members are not impressed by the person you’re planning on spending your life with, you may want to stop and ask why that’s the case.”
