Trainer Marriage? That's the second time today I have heard/seen that.All that said, go ahead, many of us need to get our trainer marriage out of the way in our twenties, don't we?
Depending on your religeous beliefs, Marriage should be a 1 time deal. I have many friends that are on number 2 or over with #1, and most still say the same thing. They wished that they had waited long enough to really know themselves as well as their spouses. I even had a friend that when he was about your age, his girlfriend gave him the ultimatum that either they get married, or she moves to Texas with her family. Of course, he didn't want to lose her, so they got married.
She moved home after 3 months, and they were divorsed after 4. Dated 2 years and knew NOTHING about each other or themselves.
The only advice besides what I already stated above, that I can give you, is that both of you have to take a look at each other in a completely logical perspective, with no emotion to cloud your judgment. Look at it like you were examining someone elses relationship. look for the things that might cause problems. The simplest bad habit can end up driving their spouse nuts.
The other thing I can tell you is that you can feel when it's right. Again, with no immediate emotion, none of that heartache that makes that pounding in your chest.
And lastly- and probably MOST IMPORTANTLY, You have to full acknowledge and accept that you are committing the rest of your life to one individual, and be OVERJOYED at the idea. With kids, Morgage, car loans, sickness, the whole 9 yards.
My Wife is my best friend, my lover, and my partner. Since we have met there have been a total of 9 days that we have been apart, 7 of those were when we first met and I had to go out of town. The other 2 was her bachellorette weekend.
If they are the right person, it doesn't matter what age you are, but always make sure that it's not just a long term infactuation.
