5 Ways to Know You’re Ready For Marriage

5 Ways to Know You’re Ready For Marriage

Getting married is the final step in a relationship. It is the peak moment of love that bonds a couple forever. Deciding if it is time to get married depends a lot of your financial stance and how the relationship is before wedding bells are summed into the equation. Keep in mind that these 5 things do not mean you aren’t right for each other, it is just a helpful checklist to decide if it is time to say “I Do”.

Are you Ready to Tie the Knot?

1. Finances 

If you are living pay check to pay check, and so is your beau you may want to pump the breaks on a wedding. A wedding can be very expensive, especially if you want it done right. It may seem like all fun and games, but planning a wedding is serious. You need to think of what the center pieces will be, what decorations the chairs will have and you even need to think about small details such as the table cloth color. All of these things, even the smallest of details will cost money. We have a serious motto, if your man can’t afford the ring of your dreams, wait.

2. Does he say he is Mr. Right or act like he is Mr. Right?

There are three types of men in this world. Do-ers, sayers, and show-ers. If you have a guy that is consistently letting you down, (not showing up to important dates, flakes out and forgets anniversaries) but tells you how much he loves you, you might want to re-evaluate the relationship. Most women like to not only be told nice things, but we like to be showed how much you care as well. A do-er is someone who is going to come over and fix your broken pipes and that is how he is showing you he cares. If you have a do-er and a show-er on your hands, we say go for it!

3. Does he Want a Future?

Do you both talk about the future together? Don’t pressure your boyfriend into making him want a future with you if he doesn’t. Remember it is not the end of the world and depending on how long you two have been together he just might not know how he feels yet! Men are very simple minded individuals, they either do want something or they don’t. If you are in a stationary relationship you need to be the bigger person and walk away.

4. Does he Like Kids?

When you two go out together and see children does he ever bring up that he one day wants his own kids? Does he say “I will do this with my kids.” or anything along the lines of him planning for a future full of kids? Once again it depends what kind of relationship you are in. You both may be business oriented people who don’t see kids as a deal breaker. But if you want kids and he doesn’t this might complicate things later.

5. Live Together

I know this sounds very strange, but studies have shown that a couple that lives together prior to marriage has less of a chance of divorcing. Living with your partner is a lot harder because you both need to find a happy medium with your place. You might not like mess and he might be messy. You need to figure out how to make things work. You really get to know someone when you live with them. Privacy becomes hard to have, but this can really help you deciding if marriage is the necessary next step.
