You have the guy, and your relationship is going great. However, there’s still some underlying factor that makes you wonder… Are you ready to say, “I do”?
Marriage is a HUGE step for anyone to take, so it’s understandable that you want to make the right choice. But how do you really know for sure??
Here are 5 questions that you can ask yourself so that you can know with confidence, clarity, and ease, that you are officially ready to say “I DO”! Click below to enjoy the show!
The form you have selected does not exist.
1) Can you genuinely see yourself with this person 5 years from now? 10 years? 50 years?
2) Are you prepared to make his relatives your relatives?
Friends can come and go depending on the season you’re in. However, a family will be there for life. You’ll most likely have to see them over the holidays, summer get-together, anything your future children decide to do (school plays, soccer games, etc.)
Do you get along with his relatives? Do they get along with you?
Remember, you ‘re not just marrying this guy…you’re marrying his entire family.
3) Do you see eye-to-eye with your boyfriend/fiancé on your most important values?
What do you value most in life? Family? Your Career? Spirituality? Health? Money? Whatever it is, does your potential fiancé support them?
If your honey can’t get on board with the top things that you are most passionate about, then you’ll always feel a sense of “imbalance”.
4) Are you genuine friends with your boyfriend?
Do you have fun with your boyfriend? Are you able to talk to each other on a regular basis?
Yes, an attraction is very important to have in a relationship. But once you say “I do”, there will be times where a physical attraction will not be the sole solution. Whether you have kids in diapers, health complications, or you both are growing old…
Having a friend till the end for companionship, laughter, and to enjoy life with will be key to a lasting marriage.
5) Have you experienced many seasons of life together?
A lot of couples may not wait an entire year before getting engaged. There’s no real “right time” for this scenario. Every couple is different. Instead, focus on experiencing different seasons in each other’s life.
Have you been dating long enough to see the highs and the lows? Have you experienced life with him during their favorite sports season? Gonna tell you right now, that the sports watching could get crazy. How about through the death of a family member? Have they ever been sick around you before? Have you experienced job loss or job promotion with them?
Going through various seasons in life such as these can allow you to see your partner in their truest character and vice versa.
You want to know how they’ll react in different scenarios so that way, moving forward, you can understand exactly who this person is, how you can interact with them, and how you can experience life together.
These five questions really helped me to say “I do” to the right guy, so I hope they are able to help you too!
Be sure to pray about it. Offer up your honesty to God through prayer. See where you’re heart really is on these matters. And determine if you have the total peace to continue moving forward.
After honestly answering them, you’ll know without a doubt where you stand with this person, and what your next move should be.
May you follow your heart, make the best decision for your future, and enjoy the seasons to come!
