10 Signs Your Man Is Marriage Material
Many of us begin thinking about marriage after we’ve been in a relationship for a while, especially if we’re still in love with who we’re with. Sometimes, though, we’re blinded by that love and don’t see the signals that say this particular person is not ready to marry, and sometimes we don’t see problems until the relationship has developed into something serious. So you’re both on par with intensity about religion and politics, you’re both pretty good at personal finances and are able to drive, if you wish to. What else?
1 – He likes your special brand of crazy– A guy who’s going to make it in the long run will stick around, even when you’re a bitchy mess or totally irrational. He knows he can be a big pain in the butt, too. You’ve seen each other at your worst and understand each other on a level most people don’t.
2 – He knows about and indulges your guilty pleasures– This is the kind of guy who will go out of his way to do something nice for you. Like that time he bought 32 chocolate oranges from eBay so you’d never be without them, or after a long day at work came home with tickets to that thing you like (that he patently doesn’t) but took you to and sat through it without falling asleep or complaining about anything but the parking.
3 – He doesn’t have a history of violence or a long criminal record– To be honest, this is what you should be most concerned about. If your partner has a history of violence, especially domestic abuse, you should not have entered into a relationship with them in the first place. Leave the relationship as soon as you discover this.
