These are my top 13 movies to watch before getting married, and they are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?
I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!
1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"
This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.
2. "About Time"
Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!
3. "Like Crazy"
This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.
4. "The Notebook"
Every girl wants this kind of love.
5. "The Last Song"
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.
6. "Safe Haven"
You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.
7. "Inside Out"
You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.
8. "The Choice"
This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?
9. "The Longest Ride"
Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.
10. "The Age Of Adaline"
I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.
11. "The Vow"
Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?
If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.
13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"
Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!
