How Do You Know If You’re Ready For Marriage?



You’re over playing the field

When you’re single and ready to mingle, going out to the bars with the prospect of meeting a hot girl seems like the most exciting thing in the world. For the man who is happy in his relationship, the thought is exhausting. As Adam, 28, puts it: “I would much rather stay in on a Friday night with a couple of beers and watch ‘The Sopranos’ reruns with my girlfriend than be in a noisy, stuffy bar up to my elbows in people. Call me boring but it makes me happy so I couldn’t care less.”


You love the little things about her

It’s no secret that long-lasting love isn’t just built of sweeping, romantic gestures. Loving your lady’s quirks (even those which you may have found annoying in past relationships) is a clear sign that you have long-term potential together. Many people fear routine, but if your woman makes day-to-day life interesting and fun, you’ve got yourself a great recipe for beautiful future.


You’re no longer freaked out about money

Though you’d never say “no” to making more money (who wouldn’t?), you feel like you’re at a place in your life where you don’t have to worry about making ends meet. You feel confident in your ability to provide for a family, or if you’re not there just yet, you know it’s close. 


You’ve started thinking about little ones

If the thought of having children has stopped freaking you out, you could be ready to procreate. And if you imagine all of that happening with your current  girlfriend, then you’re probably ready to get married.
