5 Signs that show you’re ready for marriage

When your significant other presents you with a blinding, emerald engagement ring and asks that critical question, it can be incredibly simple to lose sight of exactly what the proposal signifies in the excitement of the moment.

But how will you know when you’re ready to take the plunge and make an everlasting promise to your hubby?

1. You accept imperfection – Marriage requires a couple to accept each other’s weakness and imperfections. You’re ready for marriage if you can accept that sometimes your partner is incredibly annoying and that doesn’t mean he’s not The One.

It takes years to turn a guy into The One, years of growing to understand how to talk about tough subjects without blowing up or giving up.

2. You take “for better or worse” seriously – Your relationship will have speed bumps and you have to understand that. Certain periods in a couple’s life like having kids are especially stressful on a relationship.

Partners who make it a point to spend time together, to be kind to each other, and to say thank you for everyday chores can make it through those tough times stronger than ever.

3. You know your future spouse better than anyone else – Whether it occurs over five years or five months, a profound knowledge of your hubby-to-be is integral to taking the next step in your relationship.

Couples should foster their familiarity before jumping into marriage, it’s really important to know your future spouse for some time, like their family of origin, discuss and agree of finances, kids, etc.”

4. You and your partner are supportive of each other – Couples who pay each other compliments, maintain mutual support, and avoid unnecessary criticism are bound to go the distance in their marriages.

5. You fight fair – Most couples don’t know how to fight fair, with respect. Respect always breeds love.
