When it comes to marriage, it’s important we make the right decisions as it’s so easy for everything to go wrong if we get married to the wrong person for the wrong reasons. The real trick is understanding whether or not the woman is – for lack of a better phrase – a keeper.
While each man will be attracted to a different sort of woman, there are a couple of signs that you should pay especially close attention to.
Call me old-fashioned, but I believe a man should only get married once. Here are a couple of ways of knowing that the woman you’ve found may very well be the last woman you’ll ever need:
1. You share the same values. You both want the same type of relationship, you know where you both stand on having children, and your goals for the future are the same. If you want to work until you’re 90, so does she. If you want to retire early and eat only pudding for the rest of your life, she’s cool with that.
2. You can tell her anything.
There’s nothing you ever feel like you need to hide from her. Ever. No matter how anxious or worried or nervous or scared you’re feeling, you know you can tell her anything at all and she won’t judge you. S’*xual fantasies, awkward illnesses, a fight you had with your parents; anything
3. She loves your friends and regularly asks about them.
You guys don’t even care that much about having “guys night” because she can hang no matter what’s happening. She knows all your friends by name and is genuinely invested in whether or not your roommate Kate gets together with that guy she likes because they would be so cute together and she wants her to be happy. You also don’t mind hanging with her and the girls if they invite you out.
4. She still texts you naughty little somethings.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been dating she still sends you flirty texts and let’s you know how bad she’s been wanting you all day.
5. You’re more than just her boyfriend and she’s way more than just your girlfriend.
You’re in a partnership. Both of you actively play a role in your relationship to make it the best it can be.
Some people say that they don’t care much for s*x… I’d say that this is because they’ve never had mind-blowing s*x before. Although you may be able to get away with ignorance as bliss, why settle for less?
11. She makes sacrifices for you and you do the same for her. And she thinks nothing of it because she genuinely enjoys making sure you’re happy and you feel the same way about her. If your woman can’t make sacrifices for you, then I don’t think you should be marrying her. For any marriage to work, sacrifices must be taken.
12. She loves bragging about you. To her friends, coworkers, everyone. Because she’s proud of you and thinks you are the coolest person she’s ever met. Her friends and roommates and coworkers know every little thing about you before you even meet them. You’re basically like a boy band she’s obsessed with that she also gets to date.
