Are you in a relationship? Are you preparing or planning towards getting married?
Then read this article to the end as we educate ourselves on some of the things you need to do as a woman before getting married.
Marriage by definition is the union between two matured individuals (a man and a woman) who have agreed to live together as husband and wife with the consent of their families.
It is the undying wish of every woman to get married at a certain stage in their lives. However, some women jump into marriage and come back years, months and even week later to express their deep regret for not planning well or not choosing the right person.

Now let’s take a look at some mistakes ladies make when it comes to marriage.
Do not follow wealth
Money plays a very vital in marriage but don’t let that be the reason you marry someone because at the end of the day you are going to regret selling your happiness in exchange for money and spending the rest of your life with an incompatible partner.
See beyond physique
Some girls are attracted to appearance more than anything else. Once they see that the man has the physique they so dream of, they accept to tie the knot with them and hence spend the rest of their lives regretting that awful decision.
To ensure a successful and happy marriage make sure you choose someone who sees, loves and cares about you the same way you do. In other words, choose someone who is going in the same direction as you are.
With these in mind, let’s discuss some of the things you should do before trying the knot.
Before you jump into marriage as a woman, ask yourself whether you are ready to live under the control of a man.
Ghanaians sometimes see marriage as a necessity of old age and therefore the moment you are old enough then the next thing is for you to marry which is not true.
Marriage is like a full time job and requires a lot of effort and time.
Learn How To Prepare Dishes
No married man would like to continue living the life of a bachelor in the sense that they will continue purchasing food from restaurants and food joints.
Every man would want his wife to prepare a decent, delicious meal for the family.
Therefore a union where the wife is unable to perform such duties is doomed and will definitely collapse.
Learn how to keep your surroundings clean
No husband would like to come home possibly with friends and colleagues to meet a dirty environment as a home.
Therefore, as a young woman who is getting ready for marriage, learn to keep your surroundings clean so that in the absence of a house help, you wouldn’t find yourself wanting.
Find a source of income
As a wife you are to support your husband and not to solely depend on his income.
Therefore finding a source of income will lift some of the burden of his shoulders give some level of financial freedom to raise the standard of living for the entire family.
Be ready to sacrifice
Love is all about sacrifice. To be able to have a peaceful, successful and happy marriage life as a woman, be ready to sacrifice your freedom, and some liberties in order to make it work.
Per our culture as Africans, woman are supposed to submit to their husbands therefore you need to sacrifice a bit of your freedom.
I believe that if these factors are practised, ones marriage could be revitalised and made awesome again.
