Luckily, we're here to help you out! In this article, we break down 5 Things To Consider Before Asking Her To Marry You:
What Kind Of Roommates Are We? As the saying goes, you don't really know someone till they become your roommate! It's important that you both get along as roommates. That doesn't mean there are never any arguments and you're always in unison. Are you both able to compromise for each other? Do your sleep schedules sync with each other? How do you both go about organizing or cleanliness? And, most importantly, does she like pineapple on her pizza?!
Are There Any Differences That I Love Now, But Might Dislike 5 Years Down The Line? It's always hunky-dory in the beginning phases of a relationship. But the things you love now might become a conflict in the future. Are you excited by her spontaneity? Are you in awe of how carefree she is? Or perhaps she's extra diligent and nit-picky (and you love that!). Of course, we're not saying you should try to change the fundamental nature of your partner. However, it's important that you give some thought to her personality traits and how well they suit you.
How Do We Handle Conflict? Conflict: the pitfall of most relationships. Here's the thing - there's no way to avoid conflict or confrontation. They will happen at some point. What's more important is how they're dealt with! When arguments arise - does either of you tend to yell at the other person? Who steps in to communicate their feelings and resolve the issue? Does bringing her chocolates and flowers help calm her down?!
What Is Our Stance On Having Kids? Whether or not you both have kids is your decision to make. But it's important that some understanding and consent is established on the topic before marriage. You'd be surprised how often this becomes an issue between couples who are about to get married. Even if both of you want kids but one longs for it more than the other - take it through before taking any big step.
How Will We Handle Finances? Let's discuss green! It causes way more conflict in relationships than we give it credit for, and is crucial to the stability of a relationship. Moreover, money is often tied with all kinds of emotional importance. Make sure to discuss what you both bring to the table in terms of finances, and how you can use money to build each other up instead of creating obstacles for either person.
Bottom Line When it's time for you to get on your knees and say the magic words, you should be absolutely certain that you're making the right choice. We hope our list has helped you gain a little more clarity in terms of that.
