You have found the love of your life and are thinking about marriage but do not know whether to do it right away or to give yourself and your relationship a little more time to mature further. Marriage is an extremely important and difficult decision and therefore should be a well thought one. But how to understand which is the right time for you to get married? Well, the answer lies within you. You just need to find a few answers with complete honesty and decide if this is the time for you to say “I DO”.
If you have recently started finding the single life boring or too fast and often imagine of getting settled in life, then this may be a hint for you and your readiness for marriage. If you often wish that you could spend more time with your partner and miss him whenever he is not around or is out of town, then it is also a strong sign of your bonding with him and reflects your eagerness and readiness for marriage. In such a scenario you may also find yourself wishing or imagining yourself going for vacations with your partner or planning for spending your entire life with him.
Do you find yourself connected to his family and are so close to them that they find and treat you like a family member? This is a good sign for you as it shows you are steadily getting prepared for marriage.
Your partner has certain habits which used to irritate you earlier if you found that in anyone else. But now you are not only comfortable with those habits but have started to appreciate them too. This means that you are ready to accept and adjust to your partner’s habits and lifestyle which is surely a sign of your marriage readiness.
If you find the idea of marriage and married life interesting and exciting and you feel so connected and loyal to your partner that the thought of any other man does not cross your mind, then this just may be the time for you to take the vow.
Calculating your finances together or making adjustments to fit in the requirements of your partner points towards your readiness once again. And if you two have started making long term decisions together like investments, retirement or even buying a house, then be sure that you have reached it and you are ready for your marriage.
