14 Worst Reasons To Get Married

By

just married couple groom carries bride

Butterflies, hearts, fairies unicorns and every other picture of love surrounds you when you think of this Mr. Wonderful! In fact, he's perfect! Not to sound cynical, but my guess is, you either have known each other for 90 days or less, or someone is hiding something. Before getting married, it is critical that the marriage undergo tests to challenge its strength.
 
14) Everyone else is doing it. 

Just like your parents used to ask, "If everyone else was jumping off a cliff, would you?" Of course not. Although your destination, marriage, is the same as your friend's, accept that your path there is unique. Just because yours winds a little longer doesn't make it any less beautiful. Better to be the last one standing, than the first one to fall, right?
 
You owe it to yourself to get married for healthy reasons... so that when you do your marriage will thrive and offer you all the greatness that it can give. Take your sweet time, dance in exploration, soak up the learnings of like and love, commit to not settling and when you arrive at the aisle the right way with the right partner by your side, you won’t want to walk down the aisle, you’ll want to run... towards all the dreamy goodness you’ve waited and prepared for.
 
Here's to making wonderful choices... for wonderful you!
 
Live and love largely,
Tristan
