When should a person pop the question to their loved one? When is the right time? When is too soon? I'm personally n0t very experienced n this topic but id love to here your opinions...:)

Hi lexridley.. First of all, welcome to mylot. Well, you should have finished your studies first before entering on this kind of serious commitment. If you have stable job. If you think that you're ready enough to live independently with your partner. If you think that you have enough experiences like doing some household chores, anything that relates to the work of a housewife. If you're mentally and physically ready to be a mom. Of course, your partner should be the same way too. Have a nice day and God speed!

soon?slow?oh,i think that is not problem.if you love he really,if you don't want to be divided with him a minute,if you want to stay with him along,that is time for you to get married.when is the right time,other people can't tell you,you must diceded by yourself. but,many people who got married,not only for love,but also for money or others.i think those people need think about about time or chance. good luck.

Hello lexridley :) I believe you'd know that its time to settle down when you're sure about the person that you're marrying. Of course, love is not the only factor to consider. Most importantly you have to know if you can already take the responsibility of raising a family. It takes time, money and selflessness to have a successful marriage. If you don't think you have these ingredients for a successful marriage yet, then of course don't get into it until you're ready :)

Marriages these days just aren't lasting. I think we need a different criteria in order to decide whether we should be getting married. Divorce is really bad on children. I have a discussion going on the topic if you'd like to add your opinion. Check the discussions i've already started. Thanks for sharing:)

If both parties are emotionally and financially ready, then I guess that's the right time for them to get married. Besides, entering this type of relationship is not that really easy. Lots of considerations to make, adjustments, preparations for the weeding and expenditures are just some of the few steps for a couple to take on to.
