While a relationship and marriage may not be what everyone looks for in a happy life, for many people that is the ideal outcome. These things are part of the major steps in life.
Your first major steps came when you took your first steps. Then you graduated high school, maybe even graduated college, and hopefully followed that with your dream career.
These life steps don’t always happen in a particular order. Maybe you meet the perfect man, have the baby, then get married. Maybe you buy the house after the wedding, or maybe you buy it even before you meet Mr. Right.
Finding Mr. Right
There may be a lot of dating or a little dating before you find the man you want to spend the rest of your life with. You’re happy with him and don’t feel the need to make excuses for his behavior.
When you have a great connection you’ll know it and you won’t want to let go of it. You are happy spending time together, you do things because you love him, and you can’t imagine yourself living your life without him.
Planning The Perfect Marriage
So you’ve found Mr. Right and you’re thinking of tying the knot. Maybe you want to be a little outgoing and do the proposal, or maybe you’re just waiting for him to make that move. If it’s right you’re both already on the same page and things will happy in due time.
Part of the perfect engagement and marriage is showing people your love and commitment to one another, which can be done with the right ring. According to experts in engagement and wedding rings, you want something that makes a bold statement about your love and commitment.
Not all guys are into wearing jewelry, especially rings, so it helps to know that much about your man. Don’t force him into a look he’s not ready for. However, if he knows that it seals your commitment, he may feel differently.
If you’re lucky enough to have a planned pregnancy, you may be wondering when is the best time to have a baby? It really depends on the person. Some people believe a baby is best had in their 20s, but for some those years are reserved for college and career.
Not everyone wants to have kids either, and that’s OK too. If you do opt for children, it helps make sure that you have the home to raise them in and the money to raise them with. You should also have all the love in your heart to give to them!
You have a minimum of 17 years to dedicate to doing all you can for your kids, so you need to be prepared for that.
Growing Old Together
Kids or no kids, the final step in life and relationships is growing old together and facing life and all of its trials together. Celebrate anniversaries with gifts of love and jewelry. Make time for each other.
At some point, one of you will have to say goodbye to the other, and no matter how old you are it will be too soon. But death is part of life. It’s the final step. And it helps to have someone to share it with.
