How do you know when it’s time to get married?

Posted by   + Show Post

Joanie got married when she was 18.

How could she be sure she was making the right decision and how it would affect her entire life?

Lol..
Ok that seems like a cop out answer and probably why our divorce rate is so high...

I'd say after you know each others strengths and weaknesses, no secrets, full disclosure, complete trust, and agree on major things like how many children, life long plans, etc. You don't have to agree but you have to compromise. It's give and take without keeping score.

It is difficult to know what s the right time to get married. If it is a good marriage then al is fine and your world is all rosy but if it is a bad if is a bad marriage then t is worse than an addiction. But the worst part is when the kids are also involved. Their lives are affected the most.

It's not so much age as it is maturity and picking the right partner..

I don't know.  It's never been the right time for me.

I don't think you ever really know that answer. Sometimes you just have to take the chance and do it :)

We just kind of knew. We ha similar ideals and had the same goals. We got along really well and went for it. It's worked so far.
