    When can you say that a person is ready for marriage?

    Sometimes people think that they are ready for marriage and they regret afterwards. Do you think we can actually tell whether one is ready for marriage or not. What are the signs that one is ready get married?

    A person is ready for marriage when they are ready to:
    1) be committed to a covenant relationship between them and God for the rest of their lives.
    2) serve each other by understanding the other's needs, and putting the other's needs before their own.
    3) love one another.
    4) respect one another.
    5) be the head of your household and lead your household well as the husband, and follow your husband as his wife as he follows God.
    6) live harmoniously through the good and the bad times.

    When a person has figured out who they are, what they want, and what they need in a life partner. This usually requires more time and introspective thinking than most people are wiling to do these days. Ideally one should have completed their education, selected a career field, be as debt free as possible and financially stable before joining their life with another. Hopefully they have done some dating, traveling, and lived enough to know the person they are seeing is "the one" as well as recognize the feeling is mutual. It is paramount to truly know the prospective mate. By that I mean witness how they cope with the disappointments of life especially those that involve you. Too often people choose to get married to someone while they are still in the "infatuation phase" of their relationship. They have yet to see each other's "authentic self".
    Ultimately the goal is to marry someone who (naturally agrees) with us on the major things in life and wants what we want at the same pace that we want it. Opposites may attract in the short run but it's like that attracts in the long run.

    While I agree with the others, here is another way to frame an answer: no one is really ever read for marriage; being married makes you ready for marriage!
