The tell-tale signs you're both ready to get married - how many do you and your beau tick off?
#1 You make each other feel like better people.
#2 You've seen each other at your very worst.
In the words of Will Ferrell: “Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer with slow Internet to see who they really are.”
#3 You know what your five-year-plan is.
Or roughly, at least. Even if you don't have a concrete timeline of what, where and when, it's good to have a vague idea of what you both want to achieve over the next few years.
#4 Outside of your relationship, you actually really like each other as people, too. Yay!
#5 You can tolerate each other's families.
Well, as much as anyone can ever tolerate their partner's family, of course...
#6 You listen to your single friends' dating stories and don't feel jealous.
You don't wish you were still 'playing the field', and the thought of downloading Tinder makes you shiver.
#7 You can talk openly about periods.
In fact, you sometimes wonder if your H2B knows your cycle better than you do.
#8 You always make up after arguments...
...Because nothing can't be fixed with you guys.
#9 You never get bored of each other. Even chilling out on the sofa together in silence is precious time well spent.
#10 It's not the thought of the wedding day that excites you - rather, it's the idea of the marriage ahead!
