10 Reasons to Travel With Your Partner Before Marriage

10 Reasons to Travel With Your Partner Before Marriage

Before making the ultimate commitment, you want to be sure that the person you are making that commitment with is the right one. Some people say the best way to do this is to live with your partner, in order to really get to know them, but the ultimate test is definitely travel. Travel broadens the mind and is the best way to widen your horizons. However, it does push people to their absolute limits. Below is a list of reasons why you should travel with your partner before marriage.

1. Being away from your partner’s natural surroundings

Traveling away from the comforts of home serves as the primary test of one’s ability to adapt. Not being around everything that is familiar to you or simply being faced with the unexpected tests how well you can cope in situations like this. You want to be with somebody who is able to adapt well when situations change unexpectedly.

2. Exploration pace

When you arrive at a new place it’s important to see if your partner matches your exploration pace. If you are the type who wants to lie in all day while they want to go out and explore, or if you are the opposite and want to explore while they want to lie in, that’s a very important factor to consider. The pace at which they live their life needs to match yours in order for the relationship to work.

3. Making memories

If you know your partner is the one, traveling is the perfect opportunity to go on an epic adventure and make long-lasting memories. Plus it would make for incredible pictures to add to the wedding video montage.

4. Compromise

A big part of marriage is compromise. In traveling to different places, you’ll be confronted with situations that will challenge the two of you and force you to make decisions. The big test here is how well you both compromise, and whether your partner is willing to compromise with you.

5. A test of patience

Delayed flights, delayed baggage, and long queues are just the tip of the iceberg when traveling. You can see how much patience your partner has when dealing with situations like this. You can also see if you have the patience to deal with your partner when they lose theirs.

6. Stepping up

If you miss your connecting flight, lose your luggage, or get sick during your travel expedition, that’s the perfect opportunity to see how your significant other reacts. You can see if your partner steps up, takes control of the situation, and deals with the problem at hand—a very important characteristic to have when considering marriage. It’s also a test of whether you trust your life in this person’s hands.

7. Mutual exhaustion

Travel is a perfect opportunity to test both your limits when you are exhausted. Traveling with your partner will involve a lot of sleepless nights and shifting of time zones. You will be able to see how much you can tolerate on two hours of sleep and how much they can tolerate as well.

8. The spending test

As you travel with your partner, you can see how both your spending patterns match up. If they don’t, you can also see if you are willing to adapt your spending habits to match theirs or vice versa.

9. Cultural infusion

Arriving in new places involves being around cultures that are different to what you are used to, which is an experience. You can see if your mate soaks in the culture and appreciates it or if they dismiss it and are insensitive.

10. The values test

New cities mean you get to explore the things you value the most. If you are into museums and historical artifacts that’s what you’d want to be exploring. This is a perfect time to see what your partner values. You can see if you both share the same interests and if you don’t, does it cause problems? This is an important factor to weigh out before making the ultimate commitment.
