4 signs your relationship is headed for marriage

15 March 2016, 18:49 Shakila Alivitsa

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 keeper!

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.
