How would I know if I am ready to get married?
The whole thing seems very confusing to me. Yes, I am in a relationship with a lovely man for a long time now. And in my country living together is not an option. Dating and living together for the rest of the life is completely different. How would I know I wouldn't mess it up? How to decide if things are better to be left this way?
You will know. It comes to us naturally when we are in love.
That's the thing. You never actually know if you are ready or not. If you are questioning marriage because you don't think your ready, then you are probably ready. The people who give marriage a bad name are the foolish individuals who believe they are ready to be married. Then being married is a kick in the gut because they realize months later that they weren't ready.
If you can afford a place to live, food, common needs, pay the bills, and keep a good relationship with your special other; you are ready.
Hoping for the best :-) Thanks for answering!
I like your comment this is good for someone who is trying to decide, no two people have the same reasons for being married to the person they love. Love is always the reason or should be but some people have lots of other reasons.
If you are asking this question, you are probably not ready. You will know when you are. When you do decide that you are ready, make sure that there is no thought of divorce as an option in your mind. If there is, you have already messed it up. No divorce, no separation, you have to MAKE it work. Then you will. Talk out any problems before they become big problems.
I think that you would want to be sure that you love him more than life almost, maybe that much. Going through all kinds of experiences together first is not a bad idea. This includes, sickness, financial, happy times and the not so happy. I believe you both will know when the time is right to marry. Knowing he is the one is something you will be very sure of, and time away from him will be very hard but you will have faith in him trust in him that could be tested lots of times, but still you will always be able to work out any thing. He should never yell at you or put you down, he should find you the most attractive woman in the world and always let him chase you a bit, it adds to the excitement and thrill of love. Never deny him anything that he needs and put him above you but still right there beside you. A song by Keith Urban called "Lifetime Love" describes all of this perfectly. saying my Rosary for you and am sure love will win and you will know when the time is right.
