Regardless of what you heart (or biological clock) says, you do not need to be in a rush to get married.
It is important to take the time to prepare yourself for such a huge step. You should question your reasons for wanting to marry this person.
It turns out there are actually books that already have questions like these for couples.
I searched the books and the internet to find suitable questions.
We agreed in advance which questions we would answer and mailed our answers out on the same day so that the other person’s answers wouldn’t influence our own.
We learned a lot about each other and what we expected from a spouse.
I know this is trivial compared to marriage, but the logic seemed the same to me. These are things that helped me when I was facing the same decision. We had attended college together and had become good friends.
Even if I was sure now that this person was the one I should marry, would I still feel that way in two years? I was signing up to be with the person for the rest of my life; I had to be sure. We even went on a couple dates, but I was never interested in anything more than friendship.
Perhaps, the most important step in deciding if you should proceed to marriage is prayer.
God created us and knows us better than we know ourselves.
Always a bridesmaid…that is what I thought I would be.
