12 signs that boyfriend t-shirt is made of husband material
He’s at a good place in his life
Settling down is a big deal for most people. Men, in particular, want to make sure that they have enough money to support a family and are established in their careers before making a lifelong commitment.
Like us, they want to know that they’re committing to the right person. If your guy is financially secure and certain that you’re the only woman for him, then there’s a high chance that he’s ready and willing to take that next step with you.
He’s a true romantic – don’t him go! But seriously, this is a guy who sees you as his life partner and who’s ready to experience the future with you. He doesn’t just hope to spend his elderly years with you; he wants you both to grow together emotionally. And hopefully you want the same as him.
Even if you’re the kind of woman who isn’t comfortable about receiving compliments, we bet you love it when your guy tells you that you’re gorgeous, smart, generous or talented.
If your boyfriend doesn’t hold back from telling you everything he loves about you – and his words are sincere – then you have to keep him around. Marriage can be a stressful journey, so it’s important to be with someone who knows how to warm your heart and make you feel special along the way.
He’s not someone you have to put on an act for. When you’re with him, you’re free to express your most honest opinions and there’s no need to worry about coming across a certain way, because he accepts you as you are. Your guard is down when you’re together. You feel like he’s the only one whom you can be yourself with and who knows what makes you tick.
Maybe he tells corny but funny jokes or does silly things that make you laugh. Remember, you’re going to be spending the rest of your life with this guy, so the least he can do is put a smile on your face and give you something to be happy about, especially when you’re going through a difficult period.
Can you imagine spending the rest of your life with someone who never says thank you and takes you completely for granted? We can’t, either. Hopefully the man you’re with is thankful for everything you do for him, even the little things.
Sex isn’t everything in a marriage, but it’s essential. It’s a way for couples to strengthen their love, commitment and connection, and, without it, many couples tend to drift apart. If your guy enjoys sharing himself sexually with you, and, more importantly, is in tune with your sexual needs and willing to find new ways to make you happy in bed, then don’t let him go.
It’s true that opposites attract, but for a marriage to have a strong foundation, both partners must share most of the same beliefs and values, particularly when it comes to important issues like sex, communication, money, religion, children, and career. This makes it easier when you have to make decisions as a couple, plus it keeps you both on the same page with regards to short- and long-term goals.
If you want kids but he doesn’t, or he prioritises sex and you don’t, you’re setting yourself up for some challenging years ahead if you decide to tie the knot.
This doesn’t just show that he’s thinking about being with you in the long-term; it also means that he respects and values your opinions. Every married couple has to make important decisions – about where to live, when to have kids, how to save money, and so on – so if he’s always asking you for your opinion about things and factors you and your lifestyle into the decisions he makes, he’s a keeper.
You want to know that your secrets are safe with him, that you can rely on him to help you with even the smallest tasks, and that you can go to him with any problem and he will help you come up with a solution. You also want to be completely sure that he will not cheat on you, use you, or harm you in any way.
During your marriage, you’re bound to face many obstacles and challenges together, so it’s important to have a partner who has what it takes to ride those storms with you.
