A few days ago, despite the pandemic, my boyfriend and I finally tied the knot. Being an independent woman that I am, I asked myself if I’m doing the right thing?
Or am I really marrying the right person? I fell for the wrong guys plenty of times in the past and I couldn’t help but question my judgement this time around.
Either I hit the jackpot or I’m driving myself towards another heartbreak. We don’t marry because we predict a bad ending. We always try our best to get the best outcome.
I did one last check before saying yes to this person and here are some of my findings:
- He has goals. And we talk about it all the time. My dreams and goals matter to him as well. He has plans and execute them accordingly.
- He respects any type of person, may it be a waiter, beggar, street singer, or a boss of a big company. His friends and colleagues trust him too.
- He is family oriented. This is the man who would call and update his parents not because he needed them and the one who would help in their tasks without questions.
There are plenty of other reasons but the above three are the most important values I am looking for. Next time you’re wondering if you’re with the right person, ask yourself what are the important values that will matter fifty years down the road.
Based on the above, without further ado, I said, yes!
