Marriage. For both women and men, it can be a day you dream about since you're very young. When I was 6, I put on a white dress and a plastic princess tiara and married my teddybear. But marriage isn't a hasty decision, it requires some analysis and a true readiness. Here are 4 big signals that say "you may marry the...guy"! 1) You love yourself. Loving yourself is more than thinking you look good in that red dress you wore to dinner last night. Self-love is a sense of feeling completely whole. It is not vain, or narcissistic. It is that moment your conscience isn't telling you you're foolish, or unattractive or not enough. It is that moment when your conscience becomes your best friend. 2) You and your partner bring out the best in each other. And you encourage each other to be even better. His success is your success, and yours is his. 3) You don't need him to save you. You are your own hero. But he is a helpful sidekick, and they're by your side as you experience life. You don't need a knight in shining armour to rescue you, you've already made it. 4) You don't need to get married. You would be perfectly content with spending your life with him without a fancy wedding. A document isn't going to suddenly change your love, it's just a symbol of how beautiful and passionate and crazy and funny and human your love is! What are your thoughts on marriage?
