5 Questions Need To Be Seriously Pondered Before Accepting An Engagement Ring

Ariana Linh |Sep 30, 2019

You wouldn't want to accept an engagement ring unless you are entirely sure. So, before you say "I Do," ask yourself these questions first!

Marriage is one of the most significant moments of a person's lifetime. It usually takes two souls a few years to get to know each other, and a lot of trials and errors before the man pops the big question. However, don't accept that engagement ring on the spur of the moment. It is a huge decision to make, and you wouldn't want to put that ring on unless you are entirely sure.

Loving each other is only one part of a relationship, and couples that genuinely manage long-lasting relationships are getting rarer and rarer. So, before you say "I Do," ask yourself these questions first!

1. Why are we doing this?

As mentioned, marriage is significant; therefore, the thinking behind it is also just as critical. You really shouldn't consider getting engaged due to fulfilling your teenage dream of a beautiful wedding. And you definitely should not get engaged just because "everyone is doing it."

Before contemplating to buy the ring, talk not only to your partner the reasons why he wants to move forward, but also ask yourself whether you are ready and what it means to you.

2. How secure are you about life without your man?

Marriage is the merger of two people. Two grown adults, to be exact. That being said, you have first to make sure you can live on your own before you can accept others. If you aren't ready to lead a life solo, you probably aren't willing to wear that ring.

3. How secure is your man about his own life?

Well, as we've said, you can't have a marriage with only one soul working. Take all of the above and ask your partner the same things. If you are to marry this person, make sure he's sure about himself.

4. Who am I?

How can you know whether your partner is a good match if you have no idea who you are? The purpose of sharing life is caring for one another, and you can't do that if you're still uncertain about a career path. For your future together to work, you would want confidence in these issues.

5. Are we looking in the same direction?

Through rose-tinted glasses, couples usually got engaged without first tackling the more significant problems of marriage like religion, work, and of course, babies. Talking is a vital part of a marriage, and if you don't want to end up with the divorce paper too soon, establish what could be deal-breakers for you and your beloved.
