  1. It’s so important to think of the realities of marriage and not just the wedding when you are planning your future. These are great signs to look for when making sure it’s the right time and the right person.

  2. Great post! I wish a friend of mines had seen this before she married. That girl wasn’t ready at all and less than a year she was divorced. You really have to be ready and willing to take that BIG step for marriage is not a playing game.
