When you are coupled up with a special someone and hit a certain mark in the relationship, you may begin to fantasize about that next step. But it is easy to get so caught up with the idea of marriage and the big day that you can forget to check in with yourself and do some quality introspection. Are you really ready for that long-term, forever-and-ever commitment? Here are 8 telltale signs.
1. You Share Similar Goals
Do you want to travel the world or buy a house, have children or not. Having similar goals will save one of you from being upset. If you are going to settle down and get married it is better to do so with someone who is more or less on the same page as you to avoid disappointment down the road.
2. You Don’t Want to Change That Person
Although minor changes can be made to accommodate a relationship in the most part you can’t change a person and if you are going to marry them you shouldn’t want to. Of course there will always be minor annoyances in any relationship but be sure that you can make peace with them before tying the knot.
