Getting married is a huge commitment, so even if you’ve been with your partner for a while, it can be difficult to work out whether it is a good idea to tie the knot or not.
With that in mind, I’ve put together some sure signs that it probably is the right time to go ahead and get hitched…
- You are in love
It’s really obvious, but you should not even be thinking about getting married if you are not 100 percent head over heels in love with your partner. If you are and you can’t imagine being with anyone else, it might be time to start checking out the best engagement rings for sale or to visit the local wedding dress shop to see if there’s anything in there you fancy.
- You know why you want to get married
If you want to get married just so you can have a beautiful dress and a big party with all of your nearest and dearest, then maybe you aren’t ready for marriage just yet. There is nothing wrong with wanting those things, but they should not be the only reason for a marriage.
If you want to get married to show your commitment, start a family and build a future together, well those are all good signs that you are in a good place to take your relationship to the next stage.
- You’ve had some fun single time
Getting married too soon can often prove disastrous because you still want to get out there and explore all that life has to offer. So, if you can honestly say that you’ve lived a great life on your own and now you feel like it’s out of your system and you’re ready to settle down, then take that as a really good sign.
- You’ve talked about it
Of course, you can’t get married without a partner, so it’s really important that they are on board with marriage too. The easiest way to determine this is to have a full and frank discussion with your partner about their hopes and dreams. Some people think that discussing marriage before the question is popped is not very romantic, but it’s 2022 and getting married should be a decision you both make together, and it doesn’t mean you can’t have a surprise proposal when the timing is right, anyway.
- You trust your partner
If you do not trust your partner completely, you do not have the foundation for a solid marriage. Both of you need to be completely sure of each other so you will not end up feeling jealous or resentful when you are married. Have complete trust? That’s a great sign.
- You can’t imagine anyone else
If you absolutely cannot imagine dating, let alone being, with another person for your whole life, then that is a really good sign that you have found the right one, and getting married is likely to be a great decision.
Spot these signs, then marriage could well be in your near future.
