When to Propose for Marriage

FAQs, News Articles, Relationship Advice

I remember the day when I first thought about being married one day. I was probably about ten years old and stood no higher than the kitchen table. Thoughts were racing through my head about the day that I get to spend the rest of my life with the girl of my dreams. Needless to say that I was thinking these thoughts about two days after being with my first girlfriend. The joys of young love.

Fifteen years later I experienced the unique sensation of standing at the altar of a little chapel, watching as the woman of my dreams walks down the aisle. It is a day that I will never forget because of the absolute joy that we as a couple experienced together on that day. It is something I would want everyone to experience. No matter how many times I rehearsed this situation in my head, I could not have been ready for the cluster of emotions that I experienced.

The question of when to propose is a difficult one to ask any man in a committed relationship. Some of the most popular responses are “I will propose the day I am financially secure” or “I don’t want to commit just yet, I want to be sure I am doing the right thing.”

I don’t believe that there is a wrong or a right answer to this question but rather the answer depends on the mind space you find yourself in. I am a firm believer that commitment must precede the level of intimacy and there is no greater form of commitment in a relationship than proposing and committing to sharing the rest of your life with another person.

I believe that the right time to propose is when you have made a decision that you cannot see yourself growing old without this person by your side. If you love the person so much that you can’t imagine your life without them then you know that you are in a headspace where you can take the commitment to the next level.
