4 signs your relationship is headed for marriage

Nairobi -If you read my articles regularly, you definitely know that
I have a habit of cheering for cohabiters. Not because I am against marriage or
I am for men getting their free milk but because I am for ladies knowing the
kind of man they are marrying before the final nail. I am of the idea that you
really do not know someone up until that moment you are really living with
them; day in day out.
Marriage is binding and if you have spent that big amount on
wedding frippery; you know you are about to survive and sacrifice because that
money can’t just go like that.
But who wants to survive in marriage? I mean? The things
people do are just beyond me but how do you know if the relationship you are in
is actually ready for the final step?
You can comfortably
discuss money and bills with them
If you two are barely married and can easily do this without
dodging the conversation, I assure you, you are doing better than most married
couples. The hardest conversations for a lot of couples in relationships are
about money and how to apportion bill paying and who is to handle what. If you
can easily approach your partner about money, then you are as good as married.
You can comfortably
say that you are a better person with them
Some people are in or have been in a relationship but they
can’t see anything that has come from being with that person. Worse still, they
are married but they regret it because they have nothing to show from that
association. If all you can see is better and better and you keep growing
because of the person you are with, then no question about it-you have a
You don’t question
yourself on whether they are the right one for you
Some people are married but they are worries to this day on
whether they missed the mark or they are talking to someone and they ask
themselves whether they made a mistake. If you are not in a doubt and you are
sure that this is the person you are ready and willing to spend the rest of
your life with, they are the one for you. But if you keep questioning it in
every discussion the both of you have, argument or when you meet new people-you
are not ready. You will regret it.
You don’t need
outsiders to solve your issues for you
You two are adult enough to come to a compromise in disagreements
and you don’t have someone leaving, taking breaks or asking other people to
come in. You are mature for marriage. It always looks good for a relationship
when not many people know your business.
