Why do some couples wait years before making the leap to marriage?

Cupid’s Advice:

Only you and your partner know when the time for marriage is right.  Don’t feel pressured to rush the big day. Here are a few reasons why couples wait:

1. You’re comfortable: Many couples become comfortable in their relationship, and may be too lazy to bother taking it to the next level.  Communicate with each other to make sure you’re both on the same page.

2. Security: It’s possible that one or both of you have grown comfortable with the relationship and the thought of marriage would take you out of your comfort zone.  If you and your partner do want to eventually marry, talk about fears that may be holding you back.

3. Peer Pressure: You feel pressure from friends and family to take your pairing to the next level, but you know that you aren’t ready.  Don’t get married for the sake of others.  Eventually, you will realize whether or not you want to spend the rest of your lives as one.
