glad to see your post.

one of the things I learnt from life is that no one can see what the future
is going to be. this includes future in this life time and the future lives.
so why not concentrate on today and tomorrow and future lives will take care
of themselves. between you and your future wife agree with what both of you
are comfortable and both of you are then happy. One thing I always try to
keep in view is a plan B if plan A does not work. Like a safety valve.
