10 signs that you aren’t ready for marriage

by Laurence-Emmanuelle Bédard Published on September 6, 2014

Like the idea of someone putting a ring on it but aren’t sure about the lifelong commitment? Here are telltale signs that you aren’t ready to get married. ​

You aren’t sure if he’s Mr. Right

Even though you’ve been dating for years, you keep wondering if there might be someone else out there who’s better for you.

Money is already an issue

If both of you are finding it difficult to manage your personal finances now, imagine how much more difficult it will be when you have to manage joint accounts!

Work is more important to you

If you’re in a stage of life where your career comes first, you may be better off postponing marriage until work doesn’t have to be such a big priority. After all, what’s the hurry?

Marriage isn’t a big deal to you

If you get bored or annoyed whenever someone asks you when you’re going to get married and start a family, then maybe marriage isn’t that important to you.

You prefer maintaining your independence

Marriage means considering the other person’s opinion before making an important decision or a big change, but you prefer calling the shots yourself.

You’re not into the whole wedding thing

Just the thought of having to organize a wedding – the reception, the cake, the flowers, etc.–makes you want to run for the hills.

You aren’t sure you believe in monogamy

The idea of being with just one person for the rest of your life scares you.

You have trust issues

You know that trust is essential to a good relationship but trust doesn’t come easily to you.

You feel pressured

Family members keep pressuring you to make it official but you’re perfectly content to keep things as they are because all that matters to you is the love you share.

You feel like you’re too young ​

You don’t feel like you’re mature enough for marriage because you don’t really know who you are or who you want to be yet.
