Finding the One

Getting married is one of the major decisions a person makes in his or her lifetime. It is a commitment to stay together regardless of the circumstances. There’s no single formula in finding the one. We talked to some couples and asked them how they knew that they already found the one. Some of them said they knew it from the moment they saw their partner, some said they started as friends, and some said they do not really know but it just felt right.

Some of us get into a number of relationships before they finally settle down while some of us marry the first guy or girl they get involved with. In an article from yahoo.com, they gave 10 indications that you have found the one:


1. When you’re together you feel like you’ve come home.
2. You feel like your partnership was meant to be, as if kissed by destiny.
3. In your communication with each other there is a rapid “knowing” of what each of you means.
4. You have a shared mission in life, perhaps a cause, a career, or the creation of a family life.
5. When you’re together the world seems like a better place.
6. Your mood is elevated when you’re together. It’s not necessarily passion or excitement, although that’s there too at times.
7. When you look at him/her you see a part of yourself that’s been missing. Perhaps it’s her assertiveness or his joy of adventure. But it’s something that when added to your life, makes you feel more complete.
8. Being together makes you more hopeful about the future you are creating.
9. You can be more authentic and fully yourself around your partner.
10. Being together makes each of you work harder on overcoming bad habits and becoming more loving people.

The list above are merely indicators. The absence of one does not mean you are wrong with your chosen partner. Having six or more indicates that you have found a good match. At the end of the day, it is your choice and whatever path you choose, pray and God will be with you along the way.
