Holy Union? Holy Heck!

Tonight, I’m going to ask a question. We’ll see what the response is.

What causes someone to know if it’s the right time to propose?

    You feel if it’s the right time. And you have to think about it for a while. You can’t just do it because right now you feel like it. It is a very important question.
    Good Luck!

    It’s been 3.5 years. For some reason, something’s telling me tonight’s the night to ask.

    You should do so only after having learned enough about the other person that you can be assured to a reasonable degree of certainty that both of you are ready to make a lifetime commitment to each other.

    If you can’t imagine the rest of your life without them, that might be a good start.

    Good luck. 🙂

    Good Luck!

    In answer to your question: I have no idea.

    When you are fairly certain that your significant other will not:

    1) Laugh in your face;
    2) Cry hysterically;
    3) Run out of the room;
    4) File a restraining order;
    5) Insist on doing it immediately;
    6) Have to get a divorce from someone else;
    7) Have to get parental consent;
    8) Have to get released from prison;
    9) Need an interpreter; or
    10) Ask you to sign a big life insurance policy.

    When you are sure you are asking the person to spend the rest of the life with you and willing to make the committment to each other. If the answer is to keep them from leaving or to “bind” them to you, then it’s not time.

    What Jennifer said. And of course that you WANT someone to be in your life, not because you feel you NEED for them to be.

    I wait with bated breath for the follow-up post!

    Well, my mother told me, “You’re miserable alone. Why not be miserable married?” : ) I know, I know, bad advice. But if it makes sense to you, why not?

    Heh, I’ve been cheated, where is my thought for the night? I come home from work and fire up the steam powered 286 and wait, no thought for the night. Damn.

    I’m not sure when the right time is. I would speculate that if you have to ask the question, the time has not yet come.

    Just my 0.02 cents

    Prayers and best wishes whatever the outcome.
