From the outside looking in, marriage is a mystifying institution.

History tells us it's the bedrock of civilization. Sitcoms tell us it's incredibly annoying. The wedding industry tells us it's a romantic destination. Marriage can be all that, and more.

A Reddit thread asked, "Married people of reddit , what something you wish unmarried people knew?

People took the question in multiple different directions, offering up advice on what to look for in a partner, how to have a successful wedding, how to stay married, and why in spite of all of the frustrations, marriage is still something worth pursuing.

1. From ConnieLingus24:

-Talk about whether you want kids before things get serious.

-Finances are something you manage together. It isn’t something you cede to one spouse for whatever reason. I say this as someone who had to teach my dad how to use an ATM and the online banking site after my mom died.

-It’s your relationship. It’s something that belongs to you two. No one else.

-Adult up. Both partners need to take in the mental load of managing the house.
