Marriage is a big commitment and a lifelong decision. We may wonder if we are truly compatible with our partners, or if we are settling for less than we deserve.
If you are considering marrying your best friend, here are ten important questions to ask yourself before taking the plunge:
Do we have strong communication skills, and are we able to express our feelings openly and honestly with each other?
Do we share similar values and beliefs about important issues such as family, religion, and finances?
Do we respect each other’s opinions and decisions, even when we disagree?
Do we have a strong physical and emotional connection, and do we feel comfortable expressing our love and affection for each other?
Have we discussed our future goals and aspirations, and do we have a shared vision for our life together?
Have we discussed our expectations for marriage, including our roles and responsibilities, and how we will handle conflicts and challenges that arise?
Do we have a support system of family and friends who are happy and supportive of our relationship?
Have we spent enough time together to truly understand each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and quirks?
Are we willing to make compromises and sacrifices in order to make our relationship work?
Can we envision a long-term future together that is happy, fulfilling, and full of love and mutual respect?
By asking yourself these questions and being honest with your answers, you will be better prepared to make an informed decision about whether marrying your best friend is the right choice for you.
