So, you think you’ve found the one, the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. But you want to be sure about it before you take a plunge. How would you know? Here are 10 signs for you to know you have found your perfect life partner.
You can share anything on earth with him: One of the most important things in any marriage is communication. You need to be able to talk about anything with your life partner- irrespective of the topic, you need to be able to share things with them and enjoy the process.
He makes you feel comfortable. You shouldn’t need to put on a façade or pretend to be something you aren’t just because you want to impress them. A marriage should be comfortable.
You share likes and life goals with him. One of the most noticeable things in a successful marriage is this. When you and your life partner manage to have things in common, you tend to bond with them. Ensure you talk about things like kids, and other major changes in your lives to make sure both of you are on the same page.
He is someone who cherishes you. This doesn’t have to elaborate declarations of love or sudden splurges on gifts. The little things matter as much, and they prove how well your life partner knows you. Starting with someone who makes you coffee the way you like it, all the way to something as intimate as a love letter, find someone who fits you.
He is a man who supports you and your goals. You are just as important as them, and your life holds as much value. Find someone who, rather than restricting your choices broadens your horizons. This is the kind of healthy and stable marriage that you need and deserve. Your other half should encourage you, rather than do the opposite. Make sure your relationship is one of mutual respect and liking.
He is someone you can trust, and who trusts you. Jealousy can tear apart a marriage as much as cheating does. You’ll need to work together on building that kind of bond that will last and stand the tests of life.
He has healthy and loving relationships with his friends and family. Your partner’s family and friends are a good sign of how the person deals with people, conflict, and relationships. Bond with them not just for a deeper understanding of your life partner, but also to become an integral part of his life- these are people you will have to live with if you choose to marry him.
He accepts your flaws as accept his. You need to accept and understand your own flaws and quirks as well as your partners and make sure that both of you agree that you fit each other. You’ll need to develop a way to deal with any conflicts and arguments that arise, and ensure that you both do talk about it rather than keeping quiet to have a successful marriage.
He is someone you are attracted to physically. While society frowns on talking about sex, make sure the person you want to commit to is someone you are attracted to. One of the most important things in a marriage is sexual attraction, and you need to ensure that both of you are comfortable with talking about what either of you might like, your limits, and what you want.
He is someone you know well, and have known for a while. Don’t make rash decisions, despite pressure. This is one of the most important decisions of your life. Get to know your life partner, and make sure there is respect and liking at least, if not love before you commit to marriage. Everyone deserves a happily ever after.
Finding someone who fits all these criteria might be difficult. But when you do, you will find that your partner was worth all the waiting.
