If you have been in a committed relationship for some time then you have probably thought about marriage at some point in time. It is something we all think about at one time or another. From all of the media out there making it seem like everyone is getting it can often feel like something we are destined to do, whether we like it or not. There is a sense of failure if you don’t get married, or so it would seem.
The truth is there are many people who do not get married, but if you are thinking or popping the question then here are some things to consider. For one, once you ask your significant other if they want to get married you can expect a lot of pressure to suddenly be pushed onto you. Everyone you know will be hearing about your engagement and asking questions. You’ll also be getting a lot of judgement from your friends if they don’t like that you are getting married to your partner.
You’ll also want to think about the headache that is the wedding. Your soon to be wife will be increasingly stressed and you’ll often have a lot of that stress pushed onto you. Also think about the commitment you are about to make. If you don’t see yourself being with that person for the rest of your life then don’t just jump in blindly. You be doing anything fair to yourself or to your significant other. If you are thinking about getting married then think about these things before you get engaged.
