Some couples know right away that they want to spend the rest of their lives together. Others take a little more time to make the decision to tie the knot. Some just need more time to figure it out because, let’s face it, every relationship takes time and work. But if you feel like you’ve given it plenty of time, perhaps you’re at a point where you’re ready to ask whether or not you want to put a ring on it. If this is you, then there are some serious things you’ll want to consider before making such a serious commitment.
Marriage is a big deal because divorces are expensive, complicated, and extremely messy. They also involve a lot of emotional and psychological pain, which nobody wants to go through. So if you know you’re with the wrong person, then don’t get stuck for life, and now might even be the right time to get out of it. This list of fifteen ways to tell she’s a keeper can really help you decide whether or not put a ring on it. If she’s a keeper, then wife her before you lose her. A good woman is a diamond in the rough.
15. She’s the Only Woman in Your World
If you’ve still got lingering eyes, then this is probably a bad habit you’ll want to ditch before you tie the knot. No woman wants to feel like you’ve just settled. Instead, you need to marry a woman that is at the center of your universe and the apple of your eye. This isn’t just cheesy talk. If you’re still finding other women attractive, then there’s bound to be plenty of drama and heartbreak in your marriage. When you meet a woman that is the most beautiful woman in the world to you – wife her. You’ll find her as beautiful at ninety as the day you met her because you’ve only got eyes for her.
14. She Doesn’t Tear You Down
If you’re dating a girl that constantly puts you down, you’re probably already exhausted. Imagine how you’ll feel a couple years into a marriage. Instead, let your significant other know how you feel and the fact that you don’t appreciate how she degrades and insults you. Give her an opportunity to change and see if she works at it. If she doesn’t change within a good amount of time, chances are high that she’ll never change. Don’t marry a girl that makes you feel worthless because you’ll eventually get sick and tired of it. Instead, marry someone who appreciates who you are and encourages you to be better.
13. She’s Your Best Friend
I’ve once attended a marriage conference where the central message was that the secret to a healthy and successful marriage was one where the husband and wife were best friends. The speaker said that the hardest marriages to help were those where the couple didn’t even see their significant other as a friend, but rather as an enemy. Some of those couples even felt like they didn’t even know each other. If you’re going to marry someone, make sure they’re your best friend. And if this is the goal you’re working toward, make an effort to deepen your friendship to that level before tying the knot.
12. You Laugh A Lot Together
An elderly couple was once asked what was the secret to their success (over sixty years of marriage) and they responded, “Humor.” They say that humor is one of the most important ingredients to a lasting and healthy marriage. If you can laugh with her about anything and everything, then you can have a relationship that can endure a lifetime. Laughter is so powerful that it can heal broken hearts and turn sorrow into joy. If you can laugh together, you can overcome the toughest battles and the many emotional struggles that come with being in a relationship.
11. She Gets Along With Your Friends & Family
A woman who truly loves you will make an effort to build a healthy relationship with the people who are closest to you. In fact, women who do this are rare gems so if you find one, wife her. Nowadays, we often hear horror stories of mother-in-law dramas rather than friendships. It’s quite refreshing when you meet a wife who actually loves and values her husband’s friends and family. This kind of a woman is one that you know you can live with for the rest of your life. Don’t let her slip away and vice versa, you should make an effort to do the same with her friends and family as well.
10. She Doesn’t Annoy the Hell Out of You
Sure, all women nag and can be annoying. Even all men can be the same way. But you might not want to make a life partner out of someone who just annoys the hell out of you for the majority of the time. That’s like signing up for a prison that would be incredibly difficult to get out of. Instead, if you see what she’s like in real life on a day-to-day basis and find her temperament fairly tolerable, then you can live with her. Remember, there’s no perfect person and you also have to check yourself. If you’re the annoying one, then chances are that no woman would want to live with you.
9. Your Personalities Complement Rather Than Clash
The reality is that there are some personalities that are simply not made to coexist. For example, if you both have highly dominant type-A personalities, you will very likely clash and it can be ugly. Ugly relationships mean even uglier separations as well as divorces. Instead, examine your personalities and how they work together in your relationship. If you complement one another, you find that your personalities work well together with one partner compensating where the other is lacking something.
8. She Doesn’t Judge You for Who You Are
Let’s be honest – it’s extremely difficult to live with someone who you feel like you always have to walk on eggshells around for fear of feeling judged. A woman who knows all of your weirdest quirks and darkest secrets, yet doesn’t belittle you or see you as a lesser person, is a woman who can make a great life partner. She doesn’t judge you for your past or present and doesn’t exhibit a greater-than-thou persona. Instead, you feel incredibly comfortable being yourself around her and, because of this, you’re a more confident and secure person. In other words, she makes you feel at home.
7. The Good Outweighs the Bad
We all know that no relationship is perfect. When there’s another human being intimately involved in the constant details of your life, there’s bound to be plenty of heated moments. However, a healthy relationship is one where the good times outweigh the bad. If you’re arguing and putting each down more than you’re laughing and enjoying each other’s presence, then this is a sign that your relationship is unhealthy and just going downhill. And if you don’t see a future with this person, then you might even want to consider cutting the cord sooner rather than later. But if the good outweighs the bad, then you might want to consider building a happy future together.
6. You Love Her for Who She Is
You also know her weirdest quirks and darkest secrets and none of them affect how you feel about her. You’ve smelled her worst farts, seen her without any makeup, and have witnessed her most embarrassing moments and you still find her incredibly attractive. On the other side, if you feel like you don’t really know who you’re dating yet, then your relationship can probably use some more time and growth. But even worse, if you don’t trust her or if you feel like she’s living a double life, then this probably isn’t someone you want to commit yourself to for the rest of your life let alone the rest of the year.
5. You Click With Her Friends & Family
They say that when you marry someone, you also marry their family and friends. This is true. A relationship doesn’t thrive when two people are living alone on an island. Instead, you’ll want to marry someone who you can see yourself spending holidays with. Her friends and family are going to become your friends and family as well, so you’ll have to love and accept them. You can’t expect someone to abandon their dearest loved ones just because you don’t get along with them as that would be extremely selfish. Instead, if you love and embrace her friends and family, this is a sign that your two worlds could collide quite nicely.
4. You Support Each Other’s Goals and Aspirations
You might not have similar dreams and aspirations but you know what each other’s life goals are and you’re fully supportive of one another. This is a good place to be or to work towards being. On the other hand, if your significant other’s life goals conflict with what you have in mind for your future and you both are unable to come to a compromise, this can make for a rough ride. Disagreement in life goals is a major cause of breakups and therefore, you may want to consider the reality of your relationship.
3. She’s Someone You Want to Protect
She’s definitely someone who you value and cherish. You don’t want to see her hurt and it breaks your heart when you see her heart-broken. Instead, you want to protect her and see her happy for as long as you live. In fact, you hope you’ll die first between the two of you. Okay, that’s a little extreme, but you get the picture. On the other hand, if you don’t have any sympathy for her when she’s hurt, or you couldn’t give a rat’s ass about her well-being, then why are you with her? Marry someone you truly cherish and want to protect.
2. She Makes You Want to Be a Better Man
You love and adore her so much that she inspires you to be a better version of yourself. She motivates you and pushes you to be the best that you can be. In fact, you find yourself doing more and living more because you want to offer her your best. If this is the kind of person you’re with, then she’ll make a great partner worth living for. On the other hand, if you’re with someone who drags you down, you might feel like burying yourself in a hole and staying there. Don’t be with someone who makes you feel depressed.
1. You Can’t Picture Your Life Without Her
Life with her is the best life that you’ve had so far and you couldn’t imagine your future without her. In fact, when you’re apart, you’re wondering what she’s doing and you wish you were together. And you’re not just in the “honeymoon” phase. You’ve been together long enough and you still feel like you only want to do life with her. This is the kind of person you’ll want to marry because your time together is proof that your future will be just as beautiful. If you can’t picture your future without her, then this is a sure sign that it’s time to put a ring on it.
