The celebrity couple are more than excited for their future. With talks of a celebrity wedding, it looks like our Bieber is growing up.
This celebrity engagement came at a good time in Justin’s life. What are some ways to know you’re ready for marriage?
Just when you think things can’t get any better, BOOM, you’re engaged! As exciting and overwhelming as it can be, marriage is a great goal to strive for. Cupid has some advice on ways to know if you are ready for marriage:
1. Slow and steady: Knowing if you are ready for marriage takes sitting down and examining your relationship. Rushing through things can eventually hurt your relationship. Remember, slow and steady wins the race. Take your time and sort things out. No relationship is perfect, but if you have a strong foundation, you may just be ready for marriage. Make sure you are taking enough time to think things over. While you don’t want to have the longest engagement like Roy and Pam from The Office, make sure enough time is given to get things in order.
2. Be the bigger person: A big part of being in a relationship, let alone a marriage, is sometimes having to be the bigger person. Compromising is a big part of being in a relationship. Marriage is a lot of work and lots of added stress. Make sure you are able to utilize these important tools. Marriages are two way streets just like any other relationship. Be prepared.
3. Right is right: Make sure you are getting married for the right reasons. Don’t get married because your cousin Michele, who is always in competition with you, just got married so now you have to out do her. Marriage is a sacred union and is something to be taken seriously. You are not only bounded together by faith, but by law. Those two words represent a lifetime commitment. If you are in it for the right reasons, then why not?
