Getting married is one of those things that shapes your future significantly, and you’ll remember your wedding day for the rest of your life. It’s your opportunity to get everybody that you love together to observe your union with the man or woman that you love, and you’re making a lifelong commitment to them (and also having a huge party, too). However, how do you know that you’re ready to walk down the aisle? We’ve noted down some key signs here.

You’re properly committed

Marriage is only something that you should consider if you’re fully committed to your partner, and you don’t feel the desire to look elsewhere (unless you’re in a non-monogamous relationship, that is). This doesn’t just mean that you’re happy with this person; it means that you’re committed to their happiness, too. Do you see yourself growing with this person for the rest of your lives together, and do they give you everything that you need?

You feel comfortable with your partner

Wherever you met your partner – through Muslim dating sites or friends of friends – you should feel fully comfortable around them, and comfortable in your relationship in general. Do you feel that you can express your emotions without judgment, and are you OK with your partner seeing you at your worst? For most people, marriage is about feeling at home with their spouse, so assess whether this is the case for you

You’re not just doing it for them

Some people end up falling into marriage because their partner has expressed their desire to tie the knot, and just won’t drop it. You may feel pretty bad for your other half as you’re not giving them what they want, but caving in and saying ‘yes’ is destined for disaster. Are you getting married because both of you want this, or is it one-sided? Really think about this question before you go waltzing down the aisle.

You want the same things

Moving on from this, it’s important that you and your future spouse want the same things. Sure, love is unconditional, but it’s going to be quite difficult if you want to settle down and have children, and your other half wants to travel the world and live a life of hedonism. You’ll know that you’re ready for marriage when you find a middle ground here, and you both have similar ideas about your future together.

You’re not doing it for the wedding itself

OK, this is a no-brainer, but you should be thinking about the concept of marriage, not the concept of a wedding. Ask yourself whether you’re dreaming about the cake and the party and the beautiful dress, or you’re thinking about the rest of your life with the man or woman that you love. If you could get married to your partner without having a lavish ceremony, would you still be so happy and excited about it? Consider this before you tie the knot.

Enjoy your (potential) wedding day, and the rest of your life with the person that you love!
