The sanctity of marriage is not for everyone. It is hard work and a lot of compromise. Couples who stay together for years and years amaze us. There are so many things one has to give up in order to be in a committed relationship. You might not be ready for one now or ever and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it! To help you sort things out a little bit here are a few signs that we think will lead you away from marriage.
Your career means everything to you
You are trying to make partner/become a CEO at your company and that is your life goal? If the only time you feel happy is when you knocked another work project out of the park – you might not be marriage-ready. Here is a tip: if you can willingly cut down your work week from 80 to 40 hours – that will be a time to settle down. Meanwhile, you do you!
You are powerful and independent
Now, we are not trying to say that one should be submissive and spineless in a marriage. That is not how it works. One thing to remember is that living with someone means sacrificing. A lot. You won’t be able to see that movie you were dying to see on your date night because your partner might not be into that genre; or that new restaurant is not vegetarian when your other half is. Be your undeniable self but remember that it might probably be impossible to do in a marriage.
