You are ready to walk down the aisle but marriage is not on your partner's agenda. Here's what you should do in this tricky situation.

Every love story in this day and age is expected to be like this: You meet, you fall in love, you date for a while and then you decide to get married. However, sometimes it turns out that your partner does not want to walk down the aisle with you, and your relationship can be very tricky.

The Exact Reason

Firstly, you have to figure out why your partner has a fear of commitment. One of the most common reasons is that he/she may have had a painful break up in the past. Or your partner just simply does not want to be tied down, craving for the freedom and adventures out there. It is also a possibility that he/she just does not loves you enough to put you in his/her future. Once you find out the main reason, you can deal with the problem better.

Your Decision

You have to clearly know about yourself before coming to any conclusion. Ask yourself: Do you love him/her enough to get married? Will your partner become a good husband/wife in the future? And this is the most important question: What marriage means to you and how important it is at this point in your life? Be sure to gain clarity about what you really need in your life.

It Takes Time

You have to be patient because your partner might need more time to trust you. He/She may feel a bit pressured when it comes to commitment, but time can change this. You do not have to wait forever, but you also should not immediately leave when he/she says no to marriage. It takes time to create a safer and deeper connection between both of you until things actually shift.

Different Expectations

If both of you end up landing on opposite sides of this issue firmly, it is better to give up this relationship. You cannot waste your time investing your affection and energy into this story once you and your partner already have different expectations.

Straight Talk

After giving enough serious thought on this matter, you need to have a very honest conversation with him/her. You should discuss your feelings and your expectations, explaining how both of you are not on the same page. Communication is the key to understanding your lover's perspective, so try to listen to him/her carefully and later come up with a proper solution.

Your Partner's Honesty

Even if  you and your partner do not share the same opinion when it comes to marriage, respect him/her for being honest with you. At least, he/she does not give you false hopes and makes it clear right from the beginning. When both of you clarify each other's needs, nobody is going to be a victim in this tricky situation.

A Dead-End

You always dream of a happy ending but your partner keeps giving signs that you are not in his/her future. From carrying on productive conversations to giving him/her more time, you try many ways but it still stays the same. At this point, it means that you are in a dead-end relationship. It is not easy to break up, but no one wants to live in an illusion. You should move on and find someone who shares a similar vision. The final decision is all yours.
