9 Reasons why you should propose Image : 437
So you’ve been with your partner for a while, and you two stuck it out and have had some of your best and worst years together - and you possibly couldn’t imagine being with any other person. So, could it be time to pop the question?

Well, whether you’re still thinking about it or it hasn’t crossed your mind before, here are great reasons why you should pop the question.

1. For Love
The most common reason for getting married is love. Love is a beautiful thing and it is what brings two people together. If you are in love with one another and committed to the relationship the next stage for you could be marriage.

2. Polled assets
Truth is: despite your constant love and support, money matters. Even if you and your partner are in the same or different financial situations, two salaries are better than one. You handle your daily and household finances together and have financial support and management.

3. You’re ready to settle down
Often once you’ve reached your professional goals, it may be the right time for the next big step in your personal life too. At this stage you are ready to settle down, enjoy the new chapter of starting a family, being taken care of, and reaping the benefits of your hard work.

4. She’s the one
You should propose because you feel that she’s the one for you and knows and feels the same way about you. It’s probably the right time to ask. She’ll say yes… for all the right reasons.

5. Winter warmth
Tis’ the season to get close: winter marriage proposals are really romantic. Just think of the romantic fires and snuggle-friendly warmth that comes with popping the question. But listen, we’re not saying you should go wild and ask anyone out there to marry you just so you can keep warm.

6. You have a desire to share your life
No one wants to be alone. It’s in our nature to want to share life and it’s experiences with those we love. There should be a willingness to be there for one another while you each fulfill your own needs and dreams.

7. To have a companion and lifetime friendship
To have a lifelong partnership where you are both able to love and support each other unconditionally. To learn and grow through the important life lessons attached to your relationship.

8. As a romantic gesture
If you and your partner know that you want to spend the rest of your lives together but don’t feel the need to get married. Why don’t you have a proposal with close friends and family as a romantic gesture? That would be a cute celebration of your love.

9. Your legacy
To leave your children a heritage, not just an inheritance. So that they can one day also have a sense of purpose, pass on what you have taught them and be a better version of you.

Whatever reason you choose for popping the question, make sure it’s for the best for both of you and your future.
