Cupid’s Advice:

It’s hard to imagine how your feelings would conflict if you were in the same position as Arie. Nevertheless, marriage is a big commitment and you need to make sure you truly love this person before you embark on this incredible journey of marriage. Here are some things that can help you focus your mind and determine whether you’re ready to propose or say “yes” to a proposal:

1. You’ve allowed yourself to be vulnerable: Before you devote yourself to a lifetime commitment, you need to make sure that your partner has seen every beautiful aspect of you and your personality. You’re not worried that one day your partner might realize some insecure that you have and then not want to be with you anymore. You know you’re ready for marriage if you have been comfortably vulnerable with your partner and they truly know what makes you, you.

3. If you couldn’t have an amazing ceremony, you’d still marry: You need to make sure that it is truly your partner whom you want to marry, not the idea of your wedding ceremony. Sometimes when you get to a certain age, you may feel like it is time to settle and have this amazing wedding ceremony that all of your friends have already had, but please make sure that your partner is who you want for the rest of your life. Your soulmate is in this world and it’s just a matter of when you find them!
