Asking someone to marry you is about far more than putting a ring on it. In doing so, you’re making a lifelong commitment to each other, a promise to be there through the good times and the bad. As a result, it’s not a decision that you should rush into!
And, as much as they say, when you know, you know, sometimes the answer as to whether or not someone is right for you is just not that simple.
With that in mind, here are 11 signs that a woman is wifey material!
You can’t imagine life without her.
If you cannot imagine your life without your SO, this is a clear sign that marriage is on the cards. After all, marriage will only strengthen the bond you currently share, allowing you to grow alongside each other for years to come.
She makes you laugh.
According to a recent study, “Humor is the number one quality people look for in choosing a partner,” and while you may be willing to laugh at a few terrible jokes to make it through a bad date if your partner makes you laugh every day, this is another sign you’ve found someone who is wifey material. In fact, being in a relationship with someone who makes you laugh could even be good for your health!
She’s a good communicator.
Good communication, especially after a fight or argument, is the backbone of a solid relationship. This is because this skill will help you to navigate your way through any issues you may encounter in the future without childish game-playing or a build-up of resentment. Pay attention to the way in which she communicates with you, shares her feelings, and listens to what you are saying.
You trust each other.
Trust is a clear sign that you have a love that will last forever – and a lack of trust is often one of the driving forces behind a breakup. This is because trust is the foundation of your relationship, which “allows for both parties to feel safe to be fully accepted, and free expression leads to deeper connection and a greater understanding of one’s self and partner.” As a result, it’s not only important that you trust your partner, they should trust you too.
She loves you for who you are.
No matter how compatible you are with your partner, there are bound to be things you disagree with or do differently. The right partner will not only accept these differences but will not try to change them either. To put it simply, your future wifey should love you for who you are – flaws and all!
She does not judge you for your past.
Whether you’ve been dating for five years or fifteen, you entered the relationship with your own past. For example, you likely dated other people or made mistakes in relationships and learned from them. The right person will not judge you for your past and will instead understand how your actions contributed to your growth as a person. Furthermore, not judging you for your past actions or mistakes (even within your current relationship) is a clear sign that a woman is wifey material.
You have similar goals for the future.
Getting married is a lot of fun, but it’s also a huge commitment into a shared future. This means you’ve got to be sure that you have the same long-term goals in mind. For example, do you envision yourself with kids or a family in the future? Do you want to live abroad? Do you want to buy a new home?
She values alone time.
Being in love does not mean that you have to spend every waking moment together – in fact, this can actually harm your relationship. After all, it means that you don’t have time to invest in personal growth or your friends and family. As a result, one sign that you’ve found the one is that you both agree upon the value of alone time or being independent. The amount of time you’d like to spend alone may vary, but understanding the importance of this is key.
You have fun together.
Trials and tribulations aside, having fun together is the hallmark of a solid relationship. Furthermore, if you’re still having as much fun as you had when your first yet months or years down the line, this means that you’ve likely found the one! This does not mean that you have to set off on adventures every day, as you should be having fun in your daily lives. Remember, you can have fun in many different ways, whether that be in the bedroom or while kicking back and watching TV together.
She gets on with your family.
When a woman makes an effort to get to know your family, this is a clear sign that she’s in it for the long haul and cares about what you (and by extension, they) think of her. And, if they love her just as much as you do, this could mean that she’s your future wifey – after all, it means that she’ll blend effortlessly into your family!
You’re always attracted to her.
While emotional intimacy is important, there’s no denying that you must also have a strong physical relationship with your partner if you want to have a long-standing relationship. As a result, if you find that you’re just as attracted to your girlfriend first thing in the morning as you are when she’s getting ready to go out, this is a sign that you’ve found the one. This is because you’re able to recognize every aspect of your beauty, and will continue to do so moving forward.
If your partner ticks all of these boxes – congratulations, you’ve found a woman with true wifey material. Now all that’s left to do is find the ring, and get on one knee. Easy, right?
