Right Time to Get Married

When you finally found a person to love, one of your next questions would be, when the right time for marriage is. Getting married is not something to be taken lightly. It is something that requires careful thought and planning because you are going to be spending the rest of your life with this one person and there’s no turning back. Sometimes, even couples who have been together for a long time still go through uncertainty about their readiness when it comes to tying the knot.

If you are caught up in the same situation and you want to know when it is the right time to get married, here are some helpful ways to find out.

1. You feel good about yourself and you know that you are already complete

You know that you are ready to take your relationship to the next level when you already feel complete and that you know that there is nothing else that you need anymore. However, this feeling is not something that is coming from your partner. It is not the other person that makes you feel whole but you have a sense of fulfillment within yourself that you know you have done everything you want to do in your life for yourself, and now you are ready to do something and start something with the love of your life.

2. You completely trust each other

You cannot take your relationship to the next level when you keep on having doubts, suspicions and you can’t completely trust each other. Marriage, or even a boyfriend or girlfriend relationship will never work without trust. However, it is also not something you are born with, and it does not take overnight to learn how to trust a person. So, until you are confident that your partner whom you will be spending the rest of your life with is trustworthy, then you might want to give yourselves more time before tying the knot. On the other hand, if you feel secure about yourself, your relationship and your future spouse, then it could be the right time to walk down that aisle.

3. You are not only lovers but you are also best friends

There is a certain stage in a relationship when couples don’t just feel that they are just lovers but they are also best friends. When you have reached this point in your relationship, then it could mean that this person is the one for you. Friendship is important in a romantic relationship because after so many years of being together, even if the romance is gone, it is your friendship that will keep you together. It is because you know that you remain to be connected no matter what happens and that despite your differences, imperfections and flaws, you know that you have completely accepted each other.

4. You know what the word commitment entails

For some people, relationships are not necessarily a “forever” thing. To them, if the relationship works, it’s good and if it doesn’t, it’s still good. If you find yourself having this mentality then you are not ready for marriage. You would know that marriage is for you if you know that it is equals to a lifetime commitment. It’s not like breaking up when you don’t like the person and just moving on to find someone else. When you tie the knot, you are trying the knot with a person for the rest of your life and you don’t see yourself spending your future with anyone else. You also know and you are confident that no matter what happens, you accept this person with all your heart and that you will never give up on your relationship with him or her until you grow old.

5. You are selfless and you know it’s not just about you anymore

You are ready to get married when most of the time, your focus is not just on yourself and you are considering that there is someone else in your life that matters. When you make decisions, you always think that there is another person who will also get affected by your decisions and that’s why you think about them too. More importantly, you are willing to adjust and compromise because you understand that it takes two people to make a relationship work.
