    How do YOU know that you have found the person to be with for the rest of your life?

    i think thattwo people should at least be honest to each other, then the trust between the two people can establish. While there will occur the feeling.

    I guess it is all about the feeling.

    If it feels right and at the same time looks like a sound judgement even if you analyse it critically, you would know for sure.

    You understand that both you and your loved one have flaws and that both of you still can manage together.

    You know when you find yourself being yourself and you are not scrutinized or judged for it.  There is a invisible connection that takes place that you can feel as well as become addicted to. Of course a silly tease here or there doesn't matter but overall your comfort zone is in its zone!!!

    My thought is that you'll know when you've found the right one to be with the rest of your life when you feel you can be yourself, but you also want to be a better person for them.

    There really is no way to describe it.  Somehow, you just know when you find the person that God has chosen for you.

    The first one, of course, she loves me and I love her. She  understands me and will always do. It always gives me a great happiness when I see her. I feel in peace if I am beside her.

    When everyone else seems to be insignificant.

    Best is the field test, i.e. try it out and see if it goes down that path. Best to take things one day at a time. If you're well matched to start with, it's just one step after the other, right?

    Because she's the only one i've ever found that can put up with all my b.s. - just kidding, but not entirely.

    I married my best friend, and there is no one in the world I would rather spend time, and the rest of my life with.

    P.S. we've been together for 10 years and still haven't ever had what I would call a fight.

    the only way i can describe it is that it's a feeling. one rarely meets a person that deep in their heart they know this is the one.

    When they walk beside you.When in-laws cannot pry you apart.When friends don;t rule your relationship,and when you look at each other before you look at the world.

    hmmm...... for a long term and Im talking marriage or some commitment here, there is that deep connection that goes beyond words.... friends, lovers, partners.
    But there is still no guarantee 'for the rest of your life'.... people change....

    One powerful way to know for sure that you have a very strong chance of staying in a happy and healthy long term marriage is by making sure that you both develop your relationship maintenance skills.

    In most cases the basic knowledge and skills for keeping the marriage healthy need to be learned and practiced at first, like the basic skills you need for driving a car. You don't want to drive without the proper training or it can really hurt all involved. Some people learn these skills from their parents and do the skills naturally that others must learn and practice until they become automatic.

    Relationship maintenance skills are the same basic skills that emotionally distressed- couples use to save and affair-proof thier marriages as well.

    These skills, which strong relationship-science and marital therapy research support, include learning how to identify, express and meet core relationship needs effectively and how to properly set protective boundaries around the relationship.

    You just know. If in doubt, is why is not the love of your life. Of course, some uncertainty may arise by painful past relationships, but when we find the love of our doubt is certain. We sense an awakening already in look, touch, smell. Everything surrounds us and makes us think about who we want. We were concerned when we have no news and we get to thinking sometimes that person would be happier without us.
    We want the good of the beloved even before ours and we have faith in everything that comes out of his mouth.
    Only a person's smile is able to nurture the heart in a dismal time ...

    Your question takes me back to my youth, and I asked my Grandmother this very question......she said:

    "If you have to ask, then you don't know"..........

    At the time, it seemed evavise...........today, many years later, I truly understand.

    You do not need anyone's permission .........to love.........
