Getting married is a big deal and comes with great responsibilities too, while it’s undoubtedly the most magical and exhilarating experience of one’s life, it’s far from a life-changing and important event. Due to this, it is advised not to rush your trip, even if you know your significant other for years. In our desi Pakistani society, it’s typically not about the wedding part (that makes it a big deal) but the mountain of responsibilities and commitments that follow you for a lifetime. Here is the list of things that you need to consider and tick off your bucket list before getting hitched – promise you won’t regret it!

  1. Achieving the ideal weight
  2. Developing a hobby
  3. Getting financially stable
  4. Side hustle
  5. Getting done with the studies
  6. Start working out
  7. Learn how to cook
  8. A road trip to remember
  9. Enrol in the courses you’ve dreamt of
  10. Follow your passion

Achieving the weight you want

Getting married means looking your best as well as feeling on top of the world. If you’re looking forward to becoming fat to fit, now is the time. One of the major lifestyle changes is working on yourself to achieve the ideal weight you’ve dreamt of but didn’t find the motivation to do so. Getting in shape is a major part of wedding planning.

Developing a Hobby

Doing something you love feels amazing at the moment but do you know that it has lasting benefits on your mental health and well-being, a natural way of creating a connection. Adopting a hobby expresses yourself; it has similar effects to venting as it relieves the stress in one’s life and makes you a happier person in the end.

Getting Financially Stable

You’re getting married means that at some point, you have to stand on your own feet. No one wants to rely completely on their partner. Living in the current era, it is essential to be able to have a solid grasp on your expenses and have them in order, which will go a long way and you’ll feel ready to get hitched.

Side Hustle

The Covid-19 pandemic influenced the minds of many people by giving them the sense of starting a side hustle that diversifies their incomes. It’s a ladder that helps you achieve your life goals. So getting into the hustle is essential when you’re young and unmarried so that you don’t have to retire in your 60s. So what are you waiting for? Start Hustling!

Getting done with the studies

Marriage comes with burdens of responsibilities, sacrifices and challenges. You will be working hard with your studies and running errands during the day. It is advised to get done with your studies and land a steady job before getting hitched.

Start working out

This is the foremost thing that you must do before tying the knot. Staying fit and healthy has its perks. It’s not a one-night achievement as it requires you to remain consistent and stick to it over the long run. Fuel up your body with healthy meals and some good sprints 😉

Learn how to cook

Cooking is not a gender-specified responsibility, but a matter of survival and a valuable skill. Think of it as, if you run to Mc Donald’s every time you hear your growling tummy and you don’t even know how to make a burger, then you fall short of being able to stand up on your feet. Apart from being awarding, it enhances creativity and improves the sense of well-being.

A road trip to remember

If you haven’t had the opportunity to go on a road trip, experience and explore the beautiful world and have all the adventures with your friends, now is the time. It’s a memory that will get stored in the back of your mind and remembered all your life. Coming across different altitudes, cuisines and customs will give you a new refreshing outlook on life. Yes, you’ll get to travel with your partner too but setting out on a road trip with your buddies has its charm. So it’s always a good idea to travel before tying the knot.
Take tons of pictures and don’t forget to bring the souvenirs with you.

Enroll in the courses you’ve dreamt of

Is there a piano lesson that you wanted to take? Or learning Spanish that was on your bucket list? How about the baking course that you wanted to enrol yourself in? So this is one of the most exciting goals that you need to go for before getting married. Take up your favourite courses and don’t let these little desires wilt in your heart, just go for it.

Follow your passion

Last but not the least, when you have some kind of a hobby or an activity that you’re passionate about, you experience more joy in your marriage, as experts say. Following your passion releases the ‘happy hormone’ – dopamine and makes you feel good. This may not be right to say that marriage fulfils every longing. Marriage is half a part of your life. Before getting hitched, it is important to understand what something that you love doing or what you feel compelled to do, so you can continue to grow as a better version of yourself. This is something that will, later on, be a stress release button for the stresses in your life.

It’s time to get up and start ticking these goals off one by one from your bucket list and have the time of your life before you take your vows. Fingers crossed!
