Many Muslim singles are looking for that perfect person, the one that they want to marry and spend the rest of their life with. Unfortunately, perfect people don’t exist—but there are certain signs to look for when you’re Muslim dating and seeking an imperfect person to marry. Here are a few tips to help you know where he or she is the one.
Do you trust your partner? You should make sure that the person you marry is one that you’re willing to open up to and who is honest. If you really want to spend the rest of your life with them, then you need to be sure that they’ll do what they say they’ll do.
Another sign that you’re with the right person is that you’re content with them. Many people are looking for the potential in a relationship, instead of what they actually have. If you always are waiting for something to resolve before you can be happy—like an annoying habit or a stressful job—then you’ll never find real happiness. The problem isn’t with the external factors, it’s with the relationship. A happy couple isn’t looking for what their relationship could be—they already have it.
How well do you and your significant other handle conflict? Disagreements are an inevitable part of a Muslim marriage, but if you can handle your differences with love and patience and you both forgive each other for making mistakes, you’ll be much better off.
Does your boyfriend or girlfriend get along with your family? Usually, if your family likes your partner, it’s because they can see that this is a good person for you. Also, this means that handling your in-laws after marriage will be easier.
Finally, one of the surest signs that you’ve found “The One” is that you truly love them, you want to spend your life with them, and you have no doubts about your marriage. Although it’s impossible to find an absolutely perfect partner, these are a few ways to know that you’ve found the person who’s right for you.
