If you’re interested in getting married one day, it’s important that you know what to look for in a man. Not all men are marriage material. This article outlines five signs that the man you’re dating is marriage material.
1. He’s family oriented
A man who comes from a close family will understand the importance of family and likely want to create that for himself. If he enjoys spending time with his parents and siblings, he will probably be interested in getting married one day. If he’s introduced you to his family, that is another good sign. People don’t often bring around dates that won’t be around for long. On the other hand, if he is always attempting to get out of his family celebrations and refuses to meet your family, chances are he’s not interested in anything that marriage and family has to offer.
2. He’s financially responsible
Even if he doesn’t make a lot of money, he knows how to save and spend according to what he makes. He might have some debt, maybe from school or his younger years when he wasn’t so money smart, but he’s working hard to pay it off. He doesn’t buy things that he can’t afford without saving up first. A man who is financially responsible will always make sure that his family has no worries when it comes to money. If he is the kind of man who buys everything he wants as soon as he wants it, to the point of getting himself into debt, he’s not the kind of man that you can trust with money. You want to know that when you combine your money with someone else’s that you won’t have to worry.
3. He’s ambitious
A man who is ambitious knows what he wants from life. He has a plan for his career and his future. He doesn’t wander through life aimlessly just hoping things happen for him. A man who is ambitious shouldn’t be mistaken for a workaholic. A workaholic is a man who will blow you off so that he can work more. A man with ambition is simply a man with goals and plans that he works toward. He might even begin including you in his future plans, which is a good sign he’s marriage material.
4. He’s Honest
I can’t stress enough how important this is! You absolutely have to trust the man you’ll marry, so if he’s been less than honest with you, he’s NOT marriage material! If he is lying or cheating now, why do you think he will change once you are married? Save yourself the heartache, attorney fees and God forbid the child support disputes by passing on someone who has proven to be dishonest while dating.
5. He stands by his beliefs
A man who knows what he believes in and isn’t afraid to stand up for is a good man to marry. If you share the same beliefs, you want someone who isn’t going to be easily swayed by other’s opinion. He will listen to and respect other people’s opinions though. When deciding whether to marry someone, you have to consider what he believes in because you will be sharing your life together. If he has no beliefs or changes his opinion depending on who is around, you might want to reconsider. If your beliefs are important to you, you want someone who not only shares those beliefs, but stands up for them.
It’s important to really look at who you’re dating if your goal is to get married. Not all men want to get married or are marriage material. If you see signs that make you think he wouldn’t make a good husband, he probably won’t.
