Cupid’s Advice:

After dating your partner for a while, you start to hear those wedding bells. How do you know when you are ready for the big “I do?” Cupid has some advice:

1. Communication: Communication is very important. However, Cupid isn’t referring to the selective hearing we all fall victim to. Good communication is one of the biggest foundations of a relationship. Expressing yourself and having healthy conversations or arguments is important. Like the relationship as a whole, communication is a two-way street, and if you feel like your communication is one way, then work on it. Better to work out the kinks now than later.

2. Happiness: If you aren’t happy, don’t get married. Too many times you see people getting married for every reason under the sun except for truly being happy together. Why spend the rest of your life unhappy? Marry someone who continuously makes you laugh and smile, someone who’s company you enjoy; whether you are hiding out at home with junk food and Netflix or having a little too much fun at Dave & Busters. Your happiness, as well as your partner’s, matters.

3. Commitment: Well, without this you have nothing. Are you guys ready to commit yourselves to each other for the rest of your lives? Cheating and other inappropriate activities are not right and something nobody has to put up with. If there are issues within this aspect of the relationship, you aren’t ready.That’s not to say things can’t get better, but this is definitely something to work on. There is no rush when it comes to marriage.
