To be ready for marriage, you need to prepare for love, be open to change and know your priorities.
Prepare for love. If you can't see yourself married with children in the future, you will not take any steps in that direction. A balanced person is not always on call with their job. It is important to figure out why you need to feel validated through your occupation. Making your career your identity is a trap because that's not the real you. In my recent book, Attract The Lasting Love Of Your Life, I share how you can develop a plan for love and career, without feeling you sacrifced one to attain the other. The excuse that one is much too busy for anything other than casual dating is an excuse for avoiding emotional attachments. Every person makes time for what they want to make time for. No one is so busy at work that a committed relationship and a satisfying career cannot co-exist in their life. The right time to marry is when you are dating with the purpose of attracting the right longterm relationship: You take love seriously, not passively committing to whoever asks you out. You know what you want in love.
Be open to change. It can be very easy to be inflexible when life does not unfold how you thought it would. Short and longterm goals will lead you to the dreams in your heart; flexibility as to the order in which they arrive allows more doors of opportunity to open. If you meet Mr. Right tomorrow , but sabotage it because you "have" to be at work all the time and neglect nurturing that love, you will regret what could have been. Most people do not look back on their lives wishing they had worked harder and longer. Disappointment and sadness comes from knowing relationships could have been so much more if given half a chance to succeed. The right time to marry is when you are not so focused on completing a goal that you miss the love right in front of you.
Know your priorities. You will nurture what you value. If your significant other is at the bottom of your list, the relationship or marriage will not survive. The right time to marry is when you know the correct order of your priorities and make the effort to stick to your convictions.
Preparing for love will not take the romance out of the equation, but will set you on the right track toward achieving those dreams you have in your heart. If you are ready to attract a man who is ready for commitment with likeminded life goals, take this opportunity to let me show you how to get started.
Life is all about love and relationships. We need personal connections to lead a fulfilling life. So when is the right time to marry? When you have prepared for that option by setting marriage as an important goal in life and are open to love walking into your life at any moment. The best way to prepare for the right relationship is to live with a hopeful expectancy that love will happen at the perfect time while you are living a full life in the pursuit of the dreams and desires in your heart.
