10 Signs He Wants To Marry You
Men are definitely hard creatures to read and it can be challenging to figure out when the man in your life is ready to take that next big step. No, we’re not talking about moving in together or getting a cat- we’re talking about marriage. When you have been in a relationship for quite a bit of time, after getting to know your love pretty well, you may be able to pinpoint that something about him is different. But, it is not always that easy! So to help you lovely ladies out there figure out if your boyfriend is feeling pretty comfortable about putting a ring on that finger or if he is actually going to pop that question soon, here are 10 signs he wants to marry you:
Sign #1.) Finances:
A man ready for marriage might start suggesting that you, as a couple, should open up a joint bank account. He might ask you to go in on a car together or even start looking into actual houses to buy with you. Or, he is suddenly concerned with saving a lot of money and won’t explain why (it could be for a ring or a wedding!) These are major signs that your significant other is ready for more. He wouldn’t be taking such big steps of commitment if he didn’t plan on being with you for the rest of his life and sharing finances… And, who most commonly share finances? Married couples!
Sign #2.) Children:
Although he may not be ready just yet to actual have those mini-yous running around, he might bring it up often. He may joke about you and him having kids together or what your kids will be like and how you will raise them. If he is discussing and joking about having kids with you, then he really does plan on having that happen someday. Children are a big commitment to even just talk about. He most likely is ready kids, marriage and a long-life with you when the time for each arises.
Sign #3.) You Are It:
You may hear a guy ready to get married start saying, “You are the one” or “You are the only one who….” Why? Your beau has stopped considering any other girl as an option for anything at all. That means he doesn’t plan on looking anywhere else to compare. You are the most important person in his life and he doesn’t plan on that changing. Can you hear the wedding bells? I can!
Sign #4.) Family:
Does your boyfriend invite you to all of his family get-together events, weddings, picnics or holidays? If he does, he already considers you a part of the family. He wants you to get to know his family and the people he loves and for them to get to know you. He may even want to tag-a-long to all of your family events and get to know your family, too! That is a definite sign of a marriage-ready lad.
Sign #5.) Trust:
Of course, even at the beginning of the relationship it is important to start developing trust. But, what I mean by trust is at a certain point, once a guy knows he wants to be with a girl forever, he will give his trust over to her completely without any hesitation. This means he will confide in you about almost anything, he’ll ask for your advice on important subjects, he’ll keep you informed on pretty much everything that he finds is important to him and he wants those important things to matter to you, too. He trusts your opinion and will take your word on anything over almost anyone else. Since most men are very prideful, they don’t usually completely take anyone’s advice unless based upon their judgement. But, with a girl who is wife-material, he may not even blink at anything you advise him to do.
Sign #6.) Say Goodbye To Jealousy:
Well, all men get jealous if they see something too suspicious going on with their women… but, when it comes to a man who is with the girl he wants to marry, like mentioned above, he will trust her completely. So, therefore, he won’t feel the need to be so jealous over little things. He will be more confident that you love him and would never do anything you shouldn’t, even if it is just flirting a little too much, he trusts you not to make bad decisions. So don’t get worried if your boyfriend doesn’t try to kill every man who looks at you! He may just have confidence in your relationship.
Sign #7.) He Pushes Through It:
Does your boyfriend hate sitting at the doctor’s office with you, waiting for your appointment? Does he absolutely dread going over to your sisters for lunch? Maybe he is always complaining about having to go to that pot-luck your neighbors throw? No matter what it is, once he realizes he wants you to be his to marry, he will suck it up and push through anything as long as it makes you happy. He may still complain about it and be a bit irked, but he will put his best foot forward to handle it by your side.
Sign #8.) The Future Planning:
A guy ready to pop that question any day now may always include you when he talks about his future plans. Whether it’s buying a new house, moving to a different city, getting a different job… etc. You may hear a marriage ready guy worrying about how any decision he makes in the future will affect you and how you feel about it, where you will be and how/if it will benefit you, too.
Sign #9.) Sudden Changes:
If he suddenly changes (in a good way!) and starts showing a lot more love, is going out of his way to do special things you like and is saying ‘I love you’ a ton more- he may be getting ready to pull out that ring. When a guy is about to propose he may start becoming slightly more clingy (again, in a good way) and showing you more attention than usual.
Sign #10.) With Words:
Has he asked you your ring size? Does he ever talk about what your dream wedding would be? Where? Does he bring up any factors of a wedding at all? If so, you can almost be definitely sure he is getting ready to get down on one knee!
