Having a family is one of the most important parts of a person’s life because through family a person will actually head on a more focused and direct path in life. People who have a healthy functional family tend to strive more towards success and greater heights than those who are not married or has no family to strive for.
But along with it is the heavy weight of the whole things, because having family is not easy and it will not be a walk in the park like the novels tell you. So, before you start a family here are some of the things that you have to consider knowing and discussing with your partner.
In high school and college they made us memorizer things and lessons in the sciences and arithmetic, and history yet they never taught us about filing and paying different types of taxes, what are mortgages AND mortgage refinance, what are insurances, and how to deal with bankruptcy and how to have a stable financial savings, none of it are taught in schools yet they expect us to know of these things when we establish our family.
Thus, we need to teach yourself and our partner about these things and discuss it with them. So that we will never be caught off-guard about these things when we establish our own family.
