How to Tell Your Guy Is Marriage Material
Are you looking at your watch and waiting for your boyfriend to pop the question? These signs will help you figure out whether he’s actually marriage material in the first place.
If you’ve been watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you know of Kenya. She’s the former Miss America sorry, Miss Universe—and she has wanted her boyfriend Walter to propose to her since her first appearance on the show. While her dramatics might be a bit ridiculous at times, she does a good job at showing how frustrating and sad it can be to find someone that you believe could be a perfect husband and dad—but then discovering that person is just not interested in marriage… at least right now.
If you’ve been looking at your watch and stamping your foot, just waiting for your boyfriend to pop the question, you are not alone. Millions of women sit around wishing, hoping, and waiting for the day they’ll hear, “Will you marry me?”
The problem, though, is that these women may be missing something crucial to the relationship: A man that is truly marriage material.
Need some help figuring it out? Here are some of the signs that indicate whether a man is marriage material to help all of the desperate women out there decide if they should fish or cut bait.
1. He talks about marriage.
When a man talks about marriage, he’s thinking about marriage (obviously!). But, just because he talks about marriage in general doesn’t mean he wants to marry you. To know if he is interested in marrying you specifically, pay attention to whether he talks about marriage with you as part of that conversation.
2. He has a timeline.
Some men are planners, and they will tell you that they are planning to marry you. The plan is set for him, but is it set for you? His plan may include marrying you, but it might not be for years. If you’re looking for marriage in the next year and he’s looking further down the line, he’s obviously not marriage material right now.
