By: Amidon Jewelers

If you are in a serious relationship you would like to take to the next level, then you will inevitably need to shop for engagement rings. There comes a time in just about every single man's life when he wants to marry the girl he is dating. He may not realize it right off the bat, but he will eventually come to terms with the fact that he needs to spend the rest of his life with this special lady. Getting married is a big step in anyone's life, so you better think long and hard about this decision and not let anyone influence it.   Some things to discuss before you pop the big question to her: marriage. If she is not on the same page and does not want to ever get married then you can go ahead and breathe a sigh of relief. No guy should ever propose with an engagement ring to a girl he is dating if they have not discussed the future. If there is no future together, he will feel a bit awkward when he drops to one knee and gets rejected.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="593"]Gabriel & Co.

How can you be in a relationship if your significant other does not celebrate Christmas and you love that holiday? If you decide you want kids on down the road, you will be at odds when it comes to the way you raise them. This will only result in arguments and huge decisions not being made since you are on such opposite pages. If you are the kind of person who shops on Black Friday and take advantage of the Christmas sales all over your town and online, then you could certainly argue over this holiday. Since most people celebrate Christmas, it kind of takes over every public building across the United States.   Kids. You must agree on whether or not you want kids before you go out shopping for engagement rings. If one of you does want them and the other does not, you should not get married. It really is as easy as that. When it comes to the big things in life like Black Friday shopping, Christmas and kids, you should definitely be on the same page with one another.
