Is this person the right one for me?
Though a simple question, it is loaded!
And of course, its better to ask up front than later.
So, let’s ask some serious ones and obtain the answers before uniting decisions are made.
Look before your leap.
According to relationship experts,
Here are eight questions to seriously consider.
Here we go.
8 “ARE WE COMMITTED?
Commitment means different things to different people.
Know what commitment means for both of you. Some would consider themselves in a committed relationship when there is sexual exclusivity. Others don’t feel secure in their relationship without a marriage certificate.
7 ARE WE A GOOD MATCH?
Listen To Your Body To Know If A Person Is The Right One For You.
Consider these three variables when deciding if a person is worth your investment in a committed relationship: 1) What your body tells you 2) If the person is sincere 3) The quality of communications within the relationship.
6 ARE YOU GENUINE?
Ask Yourself “Is My Partner Genuine?” Discover the true nature of your partner. Many people try to sell a better version of themselves in the beginning of a relationship that they often don’t live up to. Before jumping into a committed relationship, one must ask: “Do I really know this person and trust that they are who they represent themselves to be in this union?”
5 IS COMMUNICATIONS REALLY THERE?
Make Sure That The Communication Is Worth Your Commitment.
There are several insightful signs to look for when evaluating the quality of communication within the relationship. For example, you should make sure that you want to share all news, good or bad, with each other and laugh together.
4 ARE WE IN LOVE?
Make Sure That You Are Truly In Love Before Committing.
Answer and ponder very profound and difficult questions when deciding whether to take the plunge. Focus on the concept of commitment by making the commitment process leading with your wants and needs, and not just your partner’s.
3 SHOULD WE LIVE TOGETHER?
Decide Whether You Want To Live Together Before Marriage.
ClearLy, there are pros and cons to living together before marriage. While it’s nice to have your partner next to you in bed every night and to have him or her there to share household chores or rent payments, it’s also important that you know your partner’s true feelings and purpose surrounding the marriage.
2 ARE YOU FINANCIALLY DEPENDENT?
Be Emotionally, Financially & Psychologically Prepared For A Committed Relationship.
Couples should be aware of the effects that external factors can have on a committed relationship, and that it can be healthy for a committed relationship when both parties are individually secure within themselves and with their jobs. Marriage demonstrates the highest level of commitment that two individuals can show one another. Marriage and commitment require accountability and maturity.
1 WHO SHOULD PLAN THE WEDDING?
Men Should Be Encouraged To Be Involved In The Planning Of A Wedding.
If a committed relationship is destined to turn into a marriage, relationship advice is get men involved in the planning of the ceremony and reception party. If you have made the decision to unite and plant your love garden together, shouldn’t everything be decided as a team right from the beginning?”
Depending on the answers to questions 2-8, Question 1 (The wedding) may be null and void. Thank goodness that the questions are in descending order.
Oh well, at least you’ll know the answers before jumping the broom.
There you have it.
If it is a no go, there may be “One less bell to answer; one less egg to fry.”
The remaining chorus to this Fifth Dimensions song is “and all I do is cry!”
Hopefully, the ending doesn’t produce heartaches and tears, but if it is the wrong mate, perhsps it is better to cry now than later?
Right?
