Cupid’s Advice:

No one can tell you when it’s time to get married. While some couples tie the knot after six weeks, others couples take longer. Look at how long Jolie and Pitt were together before their celebrity engagement announcement! Remember, there is no right or wrong way to make your commitment to your partner official. If you do choose to get married, here are some relationship and love signs that it might be time:

1. You have children together: If you have children with your partner, it may be in their best interests for you to be legally married. This will make decisions, like the signing of legal documents and government actions, a little bit easier.

2. You have shared assets: If you’ve bought a house or car together, your relationship and love is probably very serious. With this amount of trust between you two, consider making your union official.
