In celebrity news, this Bachelorette couple won’t be tying the knot anytime soon. What are some ways to know when the right time is to get married?
Getting engaged can be one of the most exciting and emotional times in your life. You are making a decision on whether or not you would like to spend the rest of your life with your partner. In some cases, you are so overwhelmed that you say “yes,” but when the smoke clears, you start to really think it through. Cupid has some advice on ways to know when it is the right time to get married:
1. Happiness: Are you happy? Think about your relationship from the beginning to now. Forget about wanting to get married or the pressure from others to get married. Can you see yourself marrying this person? Ask yourself if you can live without your partner. As cheesy as it may sound, marriage is serious, and it is important that you are happy with this person. Remember the saying, “happy wife, happy life.”

2. Time: Jumping into marriage never ends well. Look at the time you and your partner have spent together. Whether you were friends for years first or have been together for a couple of years, make sure you truly know your partner. Do you know what makes your partner tick? What are their views on marriage? Spending enough time together will allow you to find the answers you are looking for. While someone can say they want to get married, their actions can tell you otherwise. Remember, with time comes knowledge.
3. No pressure: Don’t get married because your parents want you to or because your favorite nana wants great grandchildren, but believes in marriage before babies. You aren’t trying to figure out what to order at a pizzeria with a long line behind you; this is marriage. Pressure can make you come to a rushed decision, which you may later regret. Think things through.
