Getting Married is Right for You

If you genuinely want to spend the rest of your life with your partner, getting
married is right for you. You should find it easy to picture your future with them. It should be a happy one
You’ve Been Together a While
Getting married early on rarely works. You need to know your partner well before
you marry them, or you might end up in an unhappy relationship. Everybody feels intensely at the start of a
relationship, but what counts is how you feel after those intense feelings have died down.

You need to be in a good place before you get married, not afterwards. Be honest with yourself.
You Feel Pressured
If you feel pressured into getting married, it’s another sign you shouldn’t be
doing it. You need to be ready, so have an honest chat with your partner. It’s the only way this won’t end in
Are you getting married for the right reasons? Or do you feel that marriage will
solve all of your relationship problems? You should
have a good idea by now. You need to do what’s right for you. Being alone is better than being unhappy with
