Time to get Married

Time to get Married

The following is my answer to the question “Question for men: How did you decide it was time to get married?” on Quora

When I first started dating Joy, I warned her that I didn’t see myself ever getting married.

Six months later, I’d proposed.

The turning point was probably when we’d been together a few months, and we were talking about moving in together. I suggested buying something, rather than renting, and Joy pointed out that I was talking about making a 30 year commitment to a mortgage, but wasn’t considering marriage.

She was right. I could see myself with her for the rest of our lives.

So, I’m afraid the answer from my perspective: “You just know.”

Mortgage + long term girlfriend = hypocrite, got it.
