Now that Kim Kardashian’s well-publicized pregnancy is over and beautiful baby, North West, has been introduced to the world, media attention has turned to the next phase of Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship. Are they going to get married? A source confided to People that a wedding may be somewhere on the horizon but for now the new parents’ top priority is their daughter. “I can’t imagine them not getting married,” the source assured. “That’s in their future!”

How do you know when you’re ready to get married?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re in a loving and committed relationship, perhaps the possibility of marriage has entered your mind. But how do you know that you’re ready? Cupid has some advice:

1. You think in terms of “we”: When you’re married, you don’t get to be #1 anymore. 2 years in the Peace Corps? A job offer in Tokyo? As a single person, you have the right to drop everything and pursue such opportunities without a second thought. But as a spouse, you have to take your partner into serious consideration. If you’re not prepared to put another’s needs ahead of your own, then you’re not ready to get married.

2. You want to spend the rest of your life with him/her: With the high divorce rate in this country, it’s easy to forget that marriage is supposed to be a lifelong commitment. If you can’t imagine yourself spending the next 50 years with your partner, then call off the wedding- now!

3. You know who you are: Soul-searching and growth will always be a part of your life but you need to be comfortable in your own skin before you get married. Confidence and self-respect are not things that your spouse can give you. If you’re expecting matrimony to fix you or provide you with an identity, then your marriage will be doomed from the get-go.
