Video Transcript

If you’re at that place where, as a couple, your saying should I propose or should I accept a proposal, and your trying to decide, here are a few factors to consider.

Number one, the timing. Look at your life in terms of is it the right time, as a couple, to go ahead and propose to be married. You may consider the financial piece here.

It might be, are you in college and do you have the time or is it the right time there, just some other factors like that. Consider also your peace.

Do you have peace in your heart about this or do you feel troubled about it, you’re unsure, you’re frustrated. All of that is not a good sign.

You want to make sure you have a real sense of okay, we’ve ironed out all the issues that are troubling us and we are at peace about it, we are ready to go through with this decision.

You know, couples that decide to get engaged to be married, 90% of them are going to go through with the wedding.

That’s because they get busy with all the other factors, the wedding cake, the planning of the ceremony and everything else that goes with it.

So you need to make sure that before you pop that question or accept that question, you’re ready and look at timing and look at peace to help you decide.
