Everyone who is getting married feels different emotionally; for some it is a joyful new beginning, for some it is a necessary phase of life and for some it may be a very stressful decision. However you reach there, getting married is known to be one of the leading causes of stressor worldwide.

Give value to any concerns that you have. You are concerned for a reason but might not always consider it to be as significant as you feel. It helps to get a perspective from people other than you.

Talk about the worries and concerns that you might have. The more you express, the more relieved you will feel and you will see more solutions to your problems.

Try to have an honest conversation with your future partner about what both your goals are in life. Most problems arise when partners want different things from life. Practical considerations like living space, your job and its requirements, having children and maintaining family relations need to be discussed.

Maintain a regular routine of physical activity, eating and sleeping times even when you are busy.

You will be adjusting in a new environment, give yourself and others some time.
