Fashion icon Michael Kors recently tied the knot with longtime partner Lance LePere in stylish Southhampton, NY.  According to People, the private ceremony took place on Dune Beach and was officiated by Southampton Mayor Mark Epley.  Shortly after same-sex marriage became legal in the state of New York, the 51-year-old fashion designer announced on Project Runway his plans to marry LePere.  As Kors told Women’s Wear Daily, “To marry someone as wonderful and special to me as Lance barefoot on a glorious beach is more than I could have dreamed of.”

How do you know when you’re ready to tie the knot?

Cupid’s Advice:

Knowing you’re ready for marriage is more of a feeling than anything else.  You have to be ready to completely commit.  Here are some strong indicators:

1. When your eyes sparkle: The moment your eyes begin to sparkle more than your engagement ring is the moment you should walk down the aisle.

2. Your partner is always on your mind: If your mate is all you can talk, think and dream about, it’s time to put on that white dress.

3. You can’t stop smiling: One can always spot a person in love from his or her radiant smile.  If your smiles outweigh your frowns by a long shot, you might consider tying the knot.
