Should You Accept a Marriage Proposal?

Wedding-1024x6812

So, ladies, you think your man is going to propose. Have you thought about what you’d say if he asked you? The first thing to pop into a woman’s head is usually ‘yes!!’ but have you really considered this? It’s a serious question and requires thought! Read on to work out whether you should accept a marriage proposal:

Are You Saying Yes for the Right Reasons?

Stop thinking about the beautiful white dress and amazing party for just a second. All weddings, whatever their theme or cost, end up the same way. In marriage. Marriage is life with this person forever and ever. You’re not just saying yes to a day where all of the attention is on you, but your life with this person. Is that what you want? Focus on the bigger picture! So many people lose site of the bigger picture. Think about what your life after the wedding will be like. It’s normal to feel a bit sad that the big day is over, but you should be excited to spend the rest of your life with this person.

Have You Been With Your Partner a While?

It’s easy to get ahead of yourself when you’re in the ‘honeymoon stage’ of a relationship. It always feels like they’re going to be the one you spend your life with. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that anything can happen. Things don’t always turn out the way you expect them to. The only way you’ll truly know if you want to spend your life with your partner, is if you’ve been with them for a while. When I say while, I mean at least 3 years. This is usually the amount of time it takes to get to know one another properly. It’s normal to find yourself looking at Verragio engagement rings when you’re day dreaming about the future, but you have to be sensible. Don’t get ahead of yourself.

Do You Have the Same Expectations When it Comes to the Wedding?

What do you both picture the wedding to be like? This is a day for both of you, so you really must compromise. Some men don’t care, but it’s nice for them to have an input too. If one of you insists you marry in a church but the other doesn’t want to, this could be a problem. Make sure you discuss what you’d like and agree before going ahead. You shouldn’t bully one another into doing something you don’t want to do.

Do You Have the Same Vision for the Future?

Most importantly, you should both share the same vision for the future. Do you both want to live in the same place? Where do you see yourselves? How many children do you want? Things like this must be discussed before you even consider getting married. This is the only way you can be sure you’ll live happily ever after!

Well, will you accept a marriage proposal from your other half? Even if you’re not ready now, that doesn’t mean you won’t ever be ready. You might just need to wait a little longer. Only you know what’s best for yourself!
