1. Am I pursuing perfection or potential?
A marriage can not be achieved by perfection, but by potential, for many aim for marriage, yet few couples are not only willing, but also prepared to make the righteous sacrifices that are fundamental to the relationship to work out.
2. Are we mature enough to deal with our differences?
Marriage requires adaptations, such as choosing not to be offended when harsh words are spoken, without divorce being the first and last choice. For this to be possible, it takes a lot of maturity to deal with such a situation.
Understand that both have become one and that selfish appetites and desires can not control their lives so as not to harm the spouse and the relationship is one of the important points that mature couples understand and live.
3. Are we true in our relationship?
A relationship can not last if it is based on lies. Marriages can not last, when they have no foundation other than falsehood and have no secure and true foundations, such as love and loyalty.
Sincerity is essential to achieving a successful relationship, as it is the foundation that will allow love to grow and flourish over the years. However, if there is no sincerity between the couple, it will be the end of everything, since the lack of it tends to be the crucial point for the end of the relationship.
4. What are our priorities?
Knowing each other’s priorities is valuable before accepting a request for marriage or doing so, because priorities define our values and values tends to define who we are and what we are seeking. So, think well, love to be true needs to have basis and direction.
You should not ask for someone in marriage who does not have goals of having children, if that is your plan for the future. Perhaps, it is difficult to give up who you love so much, but to act for reason and not for emotion at this moment can free you from great disappointments in the future.
And all this is because both are seeking different paths, this tends to go against the ideals of one’s own marriage, since in him the husband and the wife walk side by side along the same road, without ever choosing different paths.
