Three Reasons Why You Should Be Careful When It Comes to Falling In Love

People often think that falling in love is a matter of the heart and rarely realize what a major decision it truly is. They rush into love without taking the time to get to know each other. More often than not, this approach does not work out.

It is not completely your fault. People feed us a narrative daily. Couples quickly go to bed in movies and other media, fall in love, and live happily ever after. Why does it not go as smoothly for you? The answer is, that it takes time to get to know someone and when you rush the process, it often spells heartache.

Here are the three top reasons you need to be super careful about whom you fall in love with:

Heartbreak Is Bad for Your Body - When researchers looked at the brains of people who are heartbroken with an MRI scanner, they found their brains looked like those of people who experienced severe pain like a burn or electric shock. Our bodies are built for attachment, and breakups cause stress responses and trouble sleeping. Divorcees are significantly more likely to die earlier than their married counterparts are.

“Broken heart syndrome” is a real thing, and 90% of the cases are in women aged 58-75. There are many causes, but one of them is an unexpected loss such as being dumped or finding out someone has been cheating. For men, research shows an increased level of inflammatory markers in men with many breakups or years living alone.

Not that staying in a relationship, no matter what is the answer. Marriage is not as good for your health if filled with conflict. Unhappy marriages are also associated with health problems.

Therefore, marriage is better for your health, but only if it is with the right partner.

It Can Be an Emotional Roller Coaster - When you fall for someone who is not your ideal partner, there can be many difficulties. Even if you do not break up, the stress of chronic conflict can take its toll. How can you relax and get your work done when you are always arguing or tension is in the air?

There are also many painful emotions in a troubled relationship. You can feel hurt, angry, rejected, regretful, embarrassed, sad, and grief. Processing loss can be difficult and takes time.

You Do Not Need Chaos in Your Life - Bad breakups and divorces can cause financial havoc. The average divorce is expensive with a report from Business Insider saying it has a $15,000 price tag and maybe even higher. Divorce can also mean that you may have to move or lose your home.

You may no longer be close to some of your family or friends. If you have children together, you are tied to each other no matter how much he or she has hurt you; peaceful co-parenting is idyllic for the wonderful development of the children. However, that is in lucky cases, a divorce can often mean custody battles, alimony, and tense child-rearing.

Discover what works for you in relationships. Take your time and learn to make honest decisions about love. Whether you are in a troubled relationship or you are unhappy about a breakup, get the help you need to improve your circumstances.

What You Should Know If You Plan To Elope

You hear about couples opting to elope rather than facing the hassle of planning a wedding. Eloping might seem like a great idea, but there are legal issues to take into consideration:

Is eloping legal in your state or the place where you plan to elope?

Get your marriage certificate before you fly somewhere. Marriage laws vary from location to location, domestically and internationally, and nothing would be more embarrassing when your family and friends discover the marriage is not legal.

You will likely need a witness and an officiant. Check your local laws. According to Rocket Lawyer, witness regulations vary from state to state. Check not only your state but your county about who is required to witness your union and what they must do to confirm it.

Know that there is a required waiting period to get your marriage license. If you are wondering why Las Vegas is so popular for elopements, it is because the laws there require no waiting period between filing for a license and getting it. You can pre-register online and pick up your license by showing your identification there. But, it is not like that everywhere. So plan your elopement after you have all that squared away.

For an officiant, check the legalities where you are going. A variety of people can act as an officiant, but that depends on legalities and restrictions. If you want a friend to be ordained or want a ship captain to do the act, think ahead and pick someone who can perform that duty on-site with you, wherever you go.

In California, anyone officiating a wedding is legally required to complete the marriage license and return it to the county clerk within 10 days of the event for registration. Every state is different. Besides hashing out the legalities of getting your license where you will live, make sure there is someone available to marry you where you are going.

Other countries can have different residency requirements in place for you to be officially married there. A ceremonial “marriage” overseas might be nice, but you will have to decide if it is worth doing if it is not official. If it is official, you will just have to do the legal matter at home.
