You aren’t sure if your relationship will lead to a marriage? Are you looking for signs he wants to marry you? If he likes it, he will put a ring on it. But he hasn’t… yet. You may have been with your partner now for quite a while or maybe even a short time. You may feel really good about the relationship and feel like you are both in it for the long haul though you are not really sure.
He has not downright proposed already but there may be some signs that he really is serious enough that he wants to take the relationship to the next level and show you that you are really the one that he wants to spend the rest of his life with. The following is a list of signs to look for, that are clear indicators he really does want to marry you.
13 Signs He Wants to Marry You
– He makes future plans
There may be discussion about a vacation and it is a long way down the road and he wants to be sure that you are the one that goes with him. He may also talk about a home that he would like to buy or he might be considering moving abroad or somewhere else and wants your input. He is thinking about the future and making plans to include you or even asks your opinion on these things. This is a good indication that he wants you around for the long haul.
– He invites you to every occasion
Family events, holidays, work events, and any other social event other than ‘guys night out’ is an opportunity for you to go out and hang out more with his family, friends, or co-workers and mingle. He is proud of the person you are and wants to share these occasions with you and isn’t afraid for those closest to him to see you around him all the time. You may even get to the point where you don’t need an invitation…you are just expected to go. This is a good sign!
– He hints about marriage
A television show might come on where there is a couple and he might just say something about, “Well, when we’re married…” then that is a pretty good sign you are the one. There are some things he might just mindlessly hint that involves being married or getting married. He might ask you what your thoughts are on it or he might just make subtle hints that are positive about marriage.
– He has married friends
When a guy notices that all of his friends are settling down, then he is going to start changing his mindset too. There are fewer guys’ nights out and more group dates with married couples and maybe even their kids. When they start settling down, they all start to gradually settle down.
– He does not stare at other girls
He might be attracted to other women but he is going to be respectful to you. No more cat calls or trying to get another girl’s number. He may take a glance and that is okay but you can hang with him and even say, “Yeah, she was cute,” and he knows that you don’t see another girl as a threat to your relationship. His gawking days are over.
– He wants to live together
He is so over living with messy, slobby guy roommates and doesn’t want to spend his time being a bachelor at home all the time. It’s you he wants to come home to. This is a pretty huge step and is generally the one right before the proposal. He actually wants to share his space with you. He is ok with your tampons in his bathroom or your fresh flowers on the table.
– He introduces you to his friends and family
When you have met the friends and family, it shows that he is proud of you and wants to show you off. Approval from friends and family is something that he wants and he will introduce you to them and invite you to events with them just so they get to know you and will love you a much as he does.
– When he refers to something in the future, you are always included
No matter how many times he talks about the future, he always wants your input. Whether he likes your input or not is another story. The thought that he wants to include you in some of the decision making is a pretty good indication that you are in this relationship as a lifer.
– He likes staying with you
He doesn’t always want to go home. He wants to spend his Saturday nights at home eating popcorn or making homemade pizza with you. You are the one he has chosen to spend most of his time around…not someone else. He doesn’t complain but instead, he enjoys it. It’s his idea even.
– You are a critical factor on his important life decisions
If he is considering a big move, taking a job somewhere else, wanting to travel the world for a while, wants to go back to school…you are always the one he goes to for an opinion or encouragement. He wants to be certain that you are going to be the one who is there with him when he makes those tough life decisions.
– He refers to your “children”
You might see children out in public that are cute or are being brats. He might just happen to sneak in a little tidbit of, “Well, our kids are…” He might even be ok talking about different parenting styles with you. How were each of you brought up? Did you get spanked for being bad? How much money did the tooth fairy leave you? He is thinking ahead.
– His things become your things
He doesn’t mind you coming into his place, if you don’t already live together. He is ok if you have the remote control even! He doesn’t care if you wear his sweatshirts. You buy things for each other and don’t expect the other to pay the other back. You are sharing and you don’t even have to ask.
– He sticks around during hard times
You may be experiencing medical issues, a death in the family, or just some personal struggles. He doesn’t have to stay around to help protect you and make sure that you are going to be ok. He wants to. He is showing you that you can lean on him when you need him. He is completely emotionally invested in you and wants you to know that he will always be there for you, for better or worse.
