At 17, I asked myself, What is the line? How do I determine what’s liking, loving or not?
Then at 22 when I became single, I remembered being puzzled when friends said that now I can take some time to ‘find myself’. Having felt like I knew what I was looking for, I didn’t know what ‘finding myself’ meant. What was I supposed to be doing?
Jump to three years later and I’m wondering at what point people really consider marriage. How do I know if I’m ready? At the average marrying age of 27? After financial stability/ when I have enough money for a house? A point where we know each other so well, we don’t argue anymore?
Along the way, I’ve learnt a few things, fallen a few times and tried to talk to God about it as much as I could. Staying near an adoration room is pretty useful when confused and heartbroken!
So, because my brain works in infographics, this is the summary of my thoughts about preparing for marriage, part 1. Each point comes from a personal place so this list isn’t exhaustive but I hope it helps you ask yourself helpful questions while you consider being more than friends 😛
