Telltale Signs That Your Relationship is Heading for Marriage

The modern woman’s relationship is not anything like what the classic 80’s pop songs make ‘love’ and ‘marriage’ sound like. Being with your boyfriend for more than 5 years, making through a couple of long distance relationship phases, going 6 months without fighting with each other – these are great milestones on your journey as a couple. However, marriage (call it another, slightly bigger milestone, or the destination itself), is not something that appears on the horizon without a thunder. If the question of marriage has been in the air but beyond the grasp of words, and you’re ill at ease with the wait, you’d need to watch out for the telltale signs that tell you whether your relationship is really mature enough to bear the fruit of marriage....more

Why I Don't Believe In "The One"

It’s cliche to say that I have found “the one” – so I won’t. As a matter of fact, Eric, my fiance, isn’t “the one” for me. He is the one who chose me and who I chose back.Right now in this honeymoon phase of our relationship I feel like he is the one and only guy for me, however, I know that life happens and 10 years down the road from now I may have a baby on my hip, a completely different personality, and a husband that I no longer view as “the one.” Sadly, I may wonder at times why I ever thought he was “the one.”...more
