If you are ready to take care of someone forever, love and respect them, put up with their stinky socks and dirty towels left on the floor. Argue about who's doing the dishes tonight, and if you can put up with the way they chew their food. Then you are ready for marriage. :)
First, ask yourself how old you are.....course you should already know, but I don't. If you are younger than about 24, then forget it for now. Less than half the marriages in the US actually make it. More than half get divorced. The younger you are, the less chance for a good marriage. Remember, it's much easier to get married, than to get divorced!
