You must have heard a common proverb, ‘Prevention is better than cure.’ This is important especially when there is no cure for a condition. A premarital checkup is significant because of this reason only. It helps couples to know about the health condition of their partners and prevent welcoming a life-threatening disease. As a couple, you get sexually intimate with your other half and that’s the time when you become susceptible to getting infectious diseases. Marriage is one of the most significant events in anyone’s life and therefore you must say yes to it after proper screening. If you wish to live longer, be healthy, and avoid suffering from chronic illness, a premarital checkup is what you need to say yes to.
