Marriage is a huge step in any relationship. Some people will tell you ‘you just know’ when someone is marriage material. If only it were that simple. As with everything in life, things feel different for different people. You might be with the perfect person for you, but just not see it right now. If you are with someone special, you might start thinking about marriage. Here are seven signs that your boyfriend is marriage material.
1. You respect him
Every successful relationship has a solid foundation of respect. When people don’t respect their partners, it means that they can’t truly love them either. Do you respect your boyfriend? Do you listen to his opinions? Some people can make wonderful boyfriends, but awful husbands. If you respect one another, you are on the right track.
2. You sing together (and laugh together)
When you are completely comfortable with someone, you don’t mind making a fool of yourself at times. If you are not afraid to belt out your favorite musical number with your boyfriend, it means that you have not reached that level just yet. Couples who have fun together and joke about all the time have long relationships. Not everything has to be serious. If you let your guard down when you are with your boyfriend, you might be ready for the next step.
3. You hate being away from him
When you are dating someone, there will be times when you can’t be together. For example, you might need to go on a break with your family, or he might need to travel for work. If, when you are away from one another, you miss each other like crazy, that is a surefire sign that you should get married.
4. He pushes you to be better
When a person tells you that you are perfect, they are lying. Nobody in this world is perfect. We all have flaws and areas in which we could improve. You want a partner who pushes you to be a better person than you are right now. That is not to say you need someone who tears you down and makes you feel bad about yourself. Instead, you need someone who motivates you to reach your goals in life.
5. You have found yourself browsing wedding sites
The fact that you are reading this post says a lot about how you feel. If you are already browsing wedding sites and thinking about marriage, it suggests that you are looking to take the next step. If, one evening, you Google where to buy wedding favours uk, there may be a reason for that. You should listen to your heart, as cheesy as it sounds, because you already know what you want.
6. He is your best friend
When you choose a life partner, you don’t just want a romantic person; you want someone who you can connect with and talk to every day. If you tell your boyfriend every little detail of your life, he is likely your best friend. If you come home from work, and can’t wait to tell him what your colleague did, it means that you trust him. There is nothing better than marrying your best friend because it means you will always be happy.
7. You are a team
Couples who work as a team should consider getting married. When you have been with your boyfriend for a while, you will get into a natural routine. If you are always arguing and shouting at one another, something is wrong. If you are always helping each other, you have found the one.
