Despite rumors (or were they?) circling the media last August that Chelsea Clinton wed long time boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky at Martha’s Vineyard last summer, the Clinton camp has denied that the union ever took place. However, rumor has it again that the couple will REALLY wed this summer, although the duo are keeping very quiet about the details.
Former first daughter and fiancé, Mark have known each other since they were teens, even attending Stanford University together. After so many years as friends and lovers, how did she convince Mezvinsky to pop the ultimate question? Here are some possible ways to get your significant other to make this life changing decision:
Keep it honest
You are with the guy/girl of your dreams and you know you will be together forever in your heart, so to assist your other half in knowing that you are what you seem, maintain a bond of truth between each other. When the time comes for the next step in your romance, they’ll believe your feelings as well as their own.
Manage your time together
With work obligations, bills to pay, and for single parents, children to take care of, it can be difficult to find time during the week to simply enjoy each other’s company. Make time for one another by planning a ‘date night’ every Friday or taking a cooking class on Tuesdays. Quality is often more essential than quantity.
No matter how well your realtionship seems to be going, you won’t be able to go further, if you don’t take the time to initiate the possibility of a more lasting bond. If you’ve been with your significant other for months, or even years, like Clinton and Mezvinsky, the situation can often turn comfortable. By explaining your wants and desires clearly, it could bring you closer to becoming husband and wife.
The most important tip is to know what you want, and take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. If you plan carefully, and follow your heart, you may find yourself planning for a wedding of your own next summer. If you’re still not hearing the question you seek, it’s possible that you are in a relationship with a commitment phobe.
