1. You still feel in love.
This sounds like a really strange point because of course, you should be in love with someone if you are in a relationship with them, especially if you are thinking about marrying them. However, you must be still in love with your partner, even after you have been together for a while. Every single relationship has a honeymoon phase at the beginning of it. This is the stage when you are just getting to know each other, you are having sex whenever you can and you just can’t get enough of this person. This stage normally lasts about a year. After that, real-life kicks in and the relationship can be taken for granted by both people.
2. You have trust with each other.
The two of you must have complete and absolute trust in one another if a marriage is going to work between you. So, how much do you trust your boyfriend? If you trust him fully and you know that he trusts you, you are on the way to having a perfect husband by your side. If your man has never given you a reason not to trust him, you should be really happy about that. Your relationship is clearly strong is the two of you have this much trust between each other, even before you have said your vows. Trust is such a big foundation that your marriage with each other would rely on, so it’s amazing news if you already trust each other so much.
If you don’t trust each other, then this is a problem. Although it’s normal for you to take some time before you trust your partner if they have ever given a reason for you to not trust them this is a red flag. Of course, you can work on trusting someone again after they have lost your trust, but it’s hard. Like I mentioned above, trust is crucial in a marriage, so if you don’t have any in your partner, you’re probably not with the right person to marry.
3.You Partner Takes Care Of You
This should be a mutual thing – there should be huge amounts of care going between you both in this relationship, especially if you are wanting to marry this man. Does he take care of you when you’re sick? Does he try to help you with any task you can’t do yourself? Does he do small acts that he knows will make your day that little bit easier? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you could be looking at your future husband. If he is already taking this kind of care of you before you are even properly bound together then that’s great news. You need to have someone by your side that is going to take care of you, especially when you go through rough patches or you can’t take care of yourself.
On the flip side, you shouldn’t marry anyone that cares less about you than they do about themselves. In a strong and healthy relationship, you should really always take more care of your partner than you do towards yourself. I’m not saying that a healthy relationship needs to be completely selfless, of course, you should take care of yourself too and there’s nothing wrong with your man if he does this. However, you don’t want to enter into a marriage with someone that is completely selfish and taking care of you doesn’t even cross his mind.
4. You are proud of him.
In a good relationship, you should always be proud of the person you are with. You should not only be proud to be with them for the attention and love they show you, but you should be proud of their characteristics that they show the world. If your man is kind to everyone, works hard and wants to make you proud of him, then you could just be staring at the man that is going to make you his wife.
There is nothing worse than feeling embarrassed about the person you are with. For example, is your man particularly rude to the waiters when you go out for dinner, or does he brag too much about how much money he earns? Anything like this will turn you off fast, and it’s wrong. You should be in a relationship with someone that you want to shout about from the rooftops. If you don’t feel like this about your man, it is not a good idea to think of him as a potential husband.
5. He brags about you to anyone who will listen.
A guy who’s husband material talks you up to his friends, family, his dry cleaner, the guy at the deli on the corner, his hairdresser, the old woman who lives next door and is always concerned about whether he’s “met a nice girl yet” … even (gulp) his mom. Because he thinks you’re talented and amazing and gorgeous, and goddamn, everyone should know.
6. In fact, he’s willing to try anything with you, no matter how odd or terrifying.
He goes to a “cuddle party” with you because you need to do a write-up on it, even though he feels totally creeped out. He takes a hoop dance class with you, even though he suspects you’re trying to emasculate him. He dresses up as Santa with you and storms the streets of NYC, where he eventually proposes to you, asking you to be his Mrs. Clau
