Getting Engaged? Get a Background Check

April 1, 2018

Tis the season! With spring and summer in the air, many people are starting to think about tying the knot with their significant other. It can be a fun, romantic time – as long as you’re going in with your eyes wide open.

 Unfortunately every year some people get married, only to discover that the person they were engaged to was nothing like they seemed. By that time, you’re locked into a relationship that’s a challenge to get away from, especially if children are involved.

 To avoid the trouble, get a private investigator to do a background check on your fiancée before you tie the knot.


It’s Worth it to Be Informed

Is doing a background check untrusting, dishonest, or… just unromantic? Not all. If you’re planning to be with someone for several decades, it’s vital.

Hopefully your fiancée will be exactly who they claimed to be. However, in some cases the private investigator discovers that a partner is already married, or is using a fake name or age. You may also find out about past criminal activity – which is essential if you want to stay safe.

Unfortunately, there are some people who spend their lives victimizing others. You don’t want to be the victim, so it pays to check before you commit.


But They’re So Kind!

Most people are understandably shocked that the person they love could be a criminal. After all, that person has been nice to them for months or maybe even years. Surely you know everything there is to know about your partner?

Unfortunately, those who victimize others are very good at hiding their intentions. They’ll happily nurture their target for as long as it takes until they feel their partner can’t get away. That’s when the darkness comes out.

Most people don’t set out to marry a domestic abuser, for instance, but people are abused every day. In fact, an abusers’ good behavior is part of the act – if they weren’t kind some of the time, you’d quickly catch on and leave.

A private investigator can help you ferret out past problems that can show you what your future will look like before you get to your wedding day. It will save you untold heartache as you move forward.


Know the Finances Early

One thing that partners can easily hide before marriage is financial difficulty. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize that once you walk down the aisle, you become joint in all of their debts, tax liens, and financial problems.

It’s common for couples to avoid this topic or be less than honest about it. When you work with a private investigator, you can get the financial information you need on your partner before you make a commitment “for better or for worse.”

Financial problems are a leading cause for divorce – discovering them in advance can save you enormous amounts of pain and struggle. You may not call things off, but you can at least discuss the realities.


Work With a Private Investigator Before You Wed

Getting married is a major commitment, and divorce is not a “quick out” if things don’t work. In fact, you can come through a divorce with significant financial, legal, and emotional issues.

Instead, work with a private investigator to find out the truth about your partner before the big day. If you find out all is well, it can boost your confidence. If you find serious concerns, you can walk away before you become more entangled.
