Are you spiritually ready to be married? Marriage is about committing to a journey of love and learning with another person. A marriage is a bond that involves two partners who believe in each other. The relationship must honor the individuals and the couple, creating spiritual and personal growth.
Ask yourself if you’re ready to go through a sometimes smooth and sometimes rocky path with someone, and at the same time to be patient while moving forward. If you lack the commitment to do so, then God or the Universe might be telling you that it’s not your time yet.
One way to prepare for a committed relationship is to express your emotions honestly to resolve relationship issues instead of holding them inside. Prepare yourself to have time for a relationship. You need to have time for own personal and spiritual development, and time for your relationship’s growth too. You also need to prepare yourself for the challenge. A relationship is not finding your other half to complete you; instead, is a path where you are enough regardless of the ups and downs it might bring.
The most crucial part of preparation is getting to know yourself first before getting married because how you connect to yourself determines how spiritual you are towards your partner. You need to accept yourself despite your flaws, failures, and limitations, and you have to begin looking inward and loving yourself before focusing on marriage.
