9 Things Every Engaged Couple Should Talk About

first_img Tweet Share 73 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img LifestyleRelationships 9 Things Every Engaged Couple Should Talk About by: – June 19, 2014 Alignment on some key values and compatibility on certain topics is crucial to an enduring marriage. You are bound to experience tests as a couple, both internal and external. Therefore there are conversations that need to take place when you know you and your fiancé are going to spend the rest of your lives together, as teammates.MoneyHow will money be handled once you are married? Assets, paychecks, inherited sums. What happens if one of you loses a job unexpectedly? Being married means you are a team and need to be on the same financial page, as this is a huge, contentious issue for many couples who divorce. If there was a single thing that separated my first husband and I, it was completely opposing views about how to spend money. Harmony on this subject is crucial for long-term unity.ChildrenDo you want them? When? How? How many? What values, ideals, and education do you want them to have? Will there be a stay home parent? “Yes, we both want children” is not enough.WorkloadThis refers to all of the unpaid work at home. How will this be divided? This issue can be an unpleasant shock if you don’t cohabitate before you wed, or discuss who will clean the toilets, take out the trash, or vacuum. FamilyWhat is your anticipation of the involvement of in-laws, siblings, holidays/vacations with extended family? Will you see them every weekend? Once a month? Two to three times a year? This can be an especially important conversation if one or both of you is an only-child.Elderly ParentsWhat will your physical and financial commitment look like? This is remarkably easy to overlook if you marry in your twenties. But, marriage is supposed to be forever, so at some point this conversation is going to become relevant. People in their 40s are now referred to as the “sandwich generation” – raising children while taking care of ageing parents. What will your roles and responsibilities be for your parents and in-laws?Sexual ExpectationsSex while dating or being engaged can be very different from sex with your husband 10 years down the road. Many couples seek therapy or counseling if one or both partners do not feel satisfied in the bedroom after many years together. It’s important to stay connected physically and having a recurring date night once a week can help keep the intimacy alive.Life PrioritiesWhat matters most to you both? Do you want to really nest and settle down or instead go traveling together? Go back to school? Do you want to volunteer in India? Save for a beach house? Talk about your aspirations and objectives and get comfortable with a relative timeline.DealbreakersWatching sports all weekend with his friends on the couch. Coming home drunk at 1 a.m. on a work night. Working non-stop 16 hours days. Blowing cash in Vegas. Over-the-top flirtation with other people. Unnecessary jealousy. What won’t you put up with over time? Repetitive behavior that upsets either of you does not bode well for a happy future together.SupportIn difficult times we all communicate differently. My husband likes time alone and I love to talk it out. We now allow for both and understand what the other requires. Its important to voice how you need to feel loved and supported and then you ask (and provide) what your spouse needs.These conversations can raise many other talking points and you need to remember that no matter how much ground is made, life is still dynamic and ever changing—you need to be flexible. As the old proverb goes, “we make plans and the gods laugh!”But getting aligned before marriage is the key to making it last. The fact you can discuss and agree on central subjects (in a mature and calm way) is the most important thing. Even if in a few years life looks different or you feel different to how you did when you married. Our relationship has experienced many changes over the years as we moved to New York City from Sydney (and started over), changed jobs, had shifts in income, and decided for now to not have children. The goal as a couple is that no topic is off the table for discussion. This means that, with your teammate beside you, almost anything can be overcome.Marieclaire Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Alexandru Teodorescu – Oddslife – Who will be this summer’s BetSurvivor?

first_img Fonbet builds betting experience through ‘Alice’ voice assistant July 7, 2020 Submit Share Related Articles StumbleUpon Oddslife has rolled out BetSurvivor, a last man standing social betting game with a first release designed to find the sharpest predictor at this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.We caught up with the tech company’s CPO Alexandru Teodorescu to learn more about the origins of the product, how it will be used to convert traffic, and how easy it is for clients to set their own rules and prizes to fit the longer form league football season.SBC: Why did you choose a ‘last man standing’ theme for this World Cup product?AT: Last Man Standing is a knockout style competition which, to a certain extent, is similar to the World Cup format. There’s many participants starting and then gradually getting eliminated until you are left with just one winner.Yet, this is not the typical Last Man Standing format that one may be familiar with from other prediction games. Users have to predict the results of 1-4 matches (based on how many matches in the day), making the game more difficult.However, this difficulty is countered by both a survival kit mechanic and appealing prize structure, which work together to stimulate friend referrals and ultimately player acquisition.SBC: How can a product such as this help your clients to retain and convert traffic?AT: Since acquisition is the main goal of Belgian operator betFIRST, our launch client for this summer’s tournament, we came up with an adjusted format that is geared towards delivering a high volume of players through the use of clever game mechanics.For instance, staying in the game is intentionally made to be more difficult. However, unlike in the classical Last Man Standing game, users have the option to spring back into action when getting eliminated with the help of game artefacts which they can earn by referring friends. There’s also multiple ways to win and different strategies that can be employed.SBC: Once the World Cup is finished, how will you realign the product to fit the longer form league football season?AT: While the first release is tailored for the World Cup tournament, the platform is built with flexibility and scaling in mind, particularly as the betFIRST deal will carry on through the 2018/19 football season and continue to offer users a more enjoyable way to consume football matches from top European leagues.The version prepared by Oddslife allows clients to set their own games with their own rules and prizes, meaning that they could set up, for example, weekly competitions, those that span the entire season or ad-hoc competitions to capitalise on the popularity of big sports events.If you are interested in more details about Oddslife’s World Cup game and social betting platform, please visit www.oddslife.com, or contact CPO Alexandru Teodorescu at act@oddslife.comYou can also download the presentation here for more information about the product.
