15 Signs Your Boyfriend Is Marriage Material
You’re in this amazing relationship with this dude who gives you butterflies. It’s all lovey-dovey with him, and you both are crazy about each other. Love is okay, but is he someone you can spend the rest of your life with? It can be utterly disappointing to figure much later that perhaps, he isn’t all that you’ve made him out to be. Well, hello. The fact that you clicked on this article means that somewhere deep down you do believe that he’s the one or he could potentially be the one. If you’re secretly wishing that the checklist here will further confirm your belief in him, we’ve got your back. Here are 15 signs that says your boyfriend is amazing AF and is definitely marriage material.
You can talk to him about anything
For instance, he doesn’t judge you when you tell him about your poop schedule.
He makes you feel genuinely happy
He’s your sunshine. With him, you’re filled with warmth and all those fuzzy feelings.
You respect each other
Because love and respect go hand-in-hand. If you’ve found the *respect* of your dreams, put a ring on it.
He likes you with all your flaws
Like Chandler said to Monica in Friends, “You’re high maintenance but I love…maintaining you.”
But inspires you to grow and work on yourself
Because you want to give him your best self!
You have a healthy give-and-take
He doesn’t make you feel like the you’re the only one who cares.
He has healed from past heartbreaks
You don’t bear the brunt of the damage done by his cheating ex. He’s past that and trusts you inarguably.
He wants to resolve conflicts with respect
It is the only way to actually *resolve* conflicts.
He is ready
He’s not hiding behind the ‘taking it slow’ BS, or the ‘I am not emotionally there yet’ bit. He is in it for the long haul and he makes it known in no uncertain terms.
You both love talking about your shared future
Maybe not the names of your future children (although we love that kinda thing!). But you both are saving up for a trip to the Maldives.
He gets along well with your people
Like your best friend sides with him and you become the butt of all their jokes when you meet. You’ve got something real there!
He pays attention to the little things
He may not notice you got your hair trimmed (come on, cut the guy some slack!) But he will make a mental note of your love for cookies and cats. So the next time, you’re mad at him, he knows how to cheer you up!
Your core values are in tune
You’re not two peas in a pod, but when it comes to life and love, you’re on the same side of the fence.
He never stops putting effort
He doesn’t become lazy and assumes the relationship can run by itself.
And yet, being with him feels effortless
It comes as naturally to you as breathing.
