Committing to your lady can be a tough choice, especially when the divorce rate gets higher every year. After all, you don’t want to take the time and money getting married only to have it end in a few months. There’s no set amount of time that you can be with someone that will prepare you for marriage, so take a look at where you are. Do you feel like committing is a possibility? If so, then keep reading for a few more hints that it’s time to put a ring on it.
In my case, my partner was a fuck friend for a long time before we got engaged. We met on a hook up website, which I joined after reading reviews that ranked them appropriately from the nsadatingguide.com/site-reviews/ which is dedicated to testing get laid sites online.
Living together before marriage is the best idea for a lot of reasons. For one thing, you can have someone help you with rent that way. Extra income is always nice. For another thing, it gives you a taste of what married life would be like. If she drives you nuts when you’re just living together, then she’d drive you off the deep end if you married her. Couples that are meant to be together really enjoy living together. It’s like having a sleepover with your best friend every night. If things don’t feel like that to you just yet, it might not be time to throw in the towel on bachelor life. Don’t rush into a marriage just because you two live together. If it’s been a while and you do feel happy living together with her, though, that’s a good sign that you two would work just as well in the long run. Start getting that proposal ready!
Picking Out Furniture
Nothing says “married” more than making joint decisions, and furniture’s a pretty big thing to go in on together. When a couple first lives together, you bring your own stuff and don’t pick out much as a pair. Furniture is a big commitment, and don’t think she hasn’t noticed. Women go nuts over those things. If you two are picking out furniture together, you’re nearly married as it is. For some, this can seem too sudden or forward. If you’re not bothered by it at all, if it seems natural, then it might be a sign that you’re ready for the next step.
This applies for all sorts of furnishings, not just couches and chairs. Even buying curtains can be a huge sign of commitment. Starting to combine all your furnishings means that you aren’t planning on going anywhere, and if that sounds pretty sweet to you, then marriage is definitely on the horizon.
Could You Exist Without Her?
This is the most important question for you to ask yourself before jumping into a marriage. You’ll (hopefully) be with her for the rest of your life, and it’s important to know that you’re making the right decision. Take some time alone, maybe take a solitary vacation and see how you feel. Do some soul searching. It sounds lame but it can really help you out if you’re on the fence. Taking time away from her will make it clear to you whether or not you can exist without her. At least, can you exist happily? It can be hard, but imagine losing her. Would it affect you forever, or would you get over it pretty quickly? If the answer is that you’d get over it quickly, then marriage might not be the best choice. The time you know you’re ready for marriage is when you start to love her and prioritize her over yourself, and know that your whole life would be worse without her. If you can’t say that with complete confidence, then you can’t say your vows and mean them. The worst thing you could do is get married without being sure that it’s the right decision to make. It wastes your time and money as well as hers, and it hurts everybody around you. Before popping that question, the best thing you can do for the both of you is be confident that you’ll work out for life.
