What are some ways to tell you and your partner are ready for marriage?

Cupid’s Advice:

Some people are ready for marriage, and others still have some growing up to do before they make it official.  Cupid has some ways to tell your mate is set to say “I do”:

1. You talk about your future:  If you and your partner find yourselves talking about wanting kids and buying a home, then it may be time to take the next step.

2. Your friends ask:  Many times close friends and family are able to see things that you can’t.  A close friend may get you thinking about tying the knot, so take their viewpoint into consideration.

3. You feel ready:  If you feel as though you and your significant other will have a long and happy future, then consider marriage.  If both of you desire marriage and a life together, then it’s a clear choice.
