Does it mean we should get married?

A few friends and I have been chatting about our relationships and the stuff we do as couples, things we do for our partners and the stuff they do for us, etc. It eventually boiled down to, how do you know if this person is the one you should marry…

I want my relationship to feel like a Disney fairy-tale and to know that the fairy-tale won’t end when the marriage certificate is signed and sealed. Laugh at my day dream but I think it’s possible and I don’t want to settle for less than amazing. I never want to fall out of love with the man I marry and I want to ensure that the guy I’m with is worth all my efforts in our relationship but also considers me worth his efforts too. I want the happily ever after and forever.

We discussed a few topics about what our significant others do that make us feel valued and what made us feel like we could get married to the people we’re with. Let me know what you think and what you think should be added to the list.

  • You are each other’s biggest fan – you both always brag about the others big and small achievements. When you made things official you couldn’t wait to share the news with all your important people.

  • You’re willing to sacrifice for each other. Not just compromising on what to eat or where to go, etc but moving cities and making big life changes for each other.

  • You’re on the same page with things that matter most to you because you’ve discussed them openly. From buying a home, to children and your plans for the future.

  • Chivalry hasn’t died yet.

  • You accept each others flaws and compliment each other’s weaknesses instead of trying to change each other.

  • Saying I miss you isn’t just sweet words, you really missed each other in whatever time period you’ve been apart.

  • You’re each others go-to person whenever you have a story to share, about work, about friends, about anything.

  • You feel comfortable planning stuff for months ahead.

  • You’re free to cry in front of each other, expose yourself at your most weakest. You can vent with each other or just laugh uncontrollably – just be entirely free to let your emotions surface.

  • You both know all the special and relevant people in each others lives. From work colleagues  to school friends and family. You’ve made an effort to get close to each the families and friends.

  • Fighting is normal for all couples but you’re able to travel together or pick what to do on date-night without arguing. You can take holidays together without a little war about the nitty-gritties.

  • When you think about marrying them, the best part isn’t the wedding, it’s the idea of spending your lives together.
